Peak to Plateau began after founder Stefan Warnaar spent three months exploring the vast Mongolian Steppe and high altitude mountains of Central Asia and the Himalayas. While living with yak herders he discovered the amazing properties of yak fiber. It is warmer, softer and more breathable than merino wool. It is also less irritable to those sensitive to sheep wool.
The outdoor base layers he went on to create are a blend of 65 percent yak wool and 35 percent tencel, which comes from a eucalyptus tree. They feature a slim fit, thumb holes and flat-stitched seams.
