Yak Wool versus Merino Wool
Merino wool is a popular choice for those wanting to keep warm and dry in cold weather. While merino wool is a great choice, independent studies carried out by Sheffield Hallam University's Centre for Sport & Exercise Science have shown that, weight-for-weight, yak wool is 40% warmer, 66% more breathable and 17% faster at transporting water vapor away from the skin. Yak wool is odor-free and is extremely soft. In fact, its softness is compared to cashmere.
