A luxuriously soft cape in over-brushed natural grey yak wool and silk, with tan horn buttons. It can be fastened at the sides and worn as an over-sized jumper, or left unbuttoned and draped over the shoulders as a cape. With painstakingly hand-stitched welt seaming throughout, and hand-sewn silk-khullu facings to finish.
The lighter haired grey yak are far less common than brown yak; only one in every hundred animals have the paler wool used to create this cape.
