Black Yak winter woolies look great, are high quality, hand-knitted and fair trade.
We have Black Yak hats including beanies, bobbles, slouchies and headbands, whilst our gloves include mittens, fingerless gloves, fold over mittens and wrist warmers. We also have super soft chunky scarves.
These winter woollies are also designed to be great to wear, eg the wooly hats are half lined, so that you can have the comfort of fleece lining but your head is still able to breathe!
What Black Yak say about themselves…
Black Yak specialises in high quality clothing and accessories from Nepal. We produce very high quality garments using only the best materials – pure new wool, not recycled, nor do we blend wool with man-made fibres. We also use high quality safe dyes as standard.
We are very proud of our fair trade values. In addition to ensuring decent wages and working conditions we provide sickness and medical benefits, pay for the education of several of our supplier’s children and fund community projects such as a recent village river erosion rescue, and the acquisition of a plot of land for building new, clean and safe premises.
Black Yak allows people to realise a very simple desire – to work for a fair wage, to be able to look after themselves and their families and to have a future with dignity and respect.
