For the Tibetan people, the yak has an irreplaceable status. The reason why Tibetans call yak “baby” is that yak provides a basic guarantee for people’s survival in traditional Tibetan society. It is full of treasures, and every treasure is selflessly bestowed on mankind. Its gifts benefit people on the plateau in terms of clothing, food, shelter, transportation, transportation, as well as burning, farming, medical treatment, entertainment, and use. It can be said that he contributed everything from birth to death.
The 48-year-old Dangxiong herder Siqu Kanxue also had joy in his expression. He is the father of six children. Today he went out to pasture with his grandson who was going home from school. He was accompanied by a young man from a relative’s family. They call the yak “Neuer”-the “wishful treasure” of the herdsman’s family. After a closer look, we laughed. We are worthy of being the “treasures of the plateau”. The three ordinary herders have the shadow of baby yak everywhere. I saw that the very exquisite needles hanging on Si’s curved waist were stitched with cooked yak leather. The vertical pocket bag carrying lunch on the back is woven with cow wool; the sling rope used to drive the cow on the grandson’s hand is made of five-color cow wool, and his little cousin has been using a ten Zigzag hardwood spindle spun cow wool yarn. Tibetan yak for riding in the agricultural area also undertakes heavy tasks such as pulling plows, carrying highland barley, and transporting fertilizers.
The yak is a critically important animal in Tibet. Its meat is a staple food, its milk is a dietary mainstay, and its fur is used for clothing and shelter. Yaks are so important to the Tibetan way of life that they are considered semi-divine creatures.

You are right, yak is very valuable in Tibet. I have been knitting for a long time and have appreciated all the advantages of yak wool yarn. I buy material at this store https://www.badmayarns.com/collection/baby-yak-wool It is very important to me that the price is affordable, because the store receives the wool of young yaks directly from reindeer herding cooperatives in Mongolia. In the end, even with shipping to other countries comes out much cheaper than merino yarn bought in our stores. But the quality is absolutely the same.
