Khunu Introduces Womens Outerwear

Now just in time for the holidays, Khunu has rolled out 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.

But now they are on their way out.

Combing for a Future in the Himalayas

Aaron Pattillo and Julian Wilson founded Khunu, a men’s knitwear company with offices in China and Colorado, last year. During a trip to Tibet in December 2008, the pair, frozen at 16,000 feet above sea level, learned about the virtues of yak wool from their Tibetan guides.
