Khunu Introduces Womens Outerwear
Last spring we ran a story on Khunu, an impressive company that manufactures sweaters from yak wool. Yak wool has numerous benefits: it is odor resistant, warm, soft, and breathable, performing relatively well compared to cashmere and Marino wool. But the greatest success of Khunu is what it has done for the nomadic families who roam across Tibet. Khunu’s sourcing of yak wool for its sleek fashion line offers additional income for families. Two percent of Khunu’s profits goes to funding social programs, from children’s education to providing medicine for those who need it the most. In a few weeks, just in time for the holidays, Khunu will release an impressive collection of women’s outerwear, or as the company describes it, adventurewear. The sweaters are well tailored, and women will love them for their slimming effect—the quality of yak wool allows such sweaters to keep their shape. Currently the line is available for order on the internet: and within the United States, shipping by USPS Priority Mail is free. Khunu’s message is simple: cool clothes that look great and support a good cause—while allowing you to keep warm and look fashion-forward.
