On the Tibetan Plateau, the aba flower, blue necklace of the grassland, is known as the autumn flower. Sensitive to light, it opens to the sun and stays closed at night or in bad weather. As the pasture turns from green to yellow, it stands out like bright blue stars scattered across a sea of gold. Sweet to the taste, it is a favorite of children, who pick it for its nectar. It also has medicinal properties, widely used as an infusion to calm the nerves.
Nomad Two Shades is a classic, stylish scarf in 100% yak wool. Head dyer/model Whandey models in the blue scarf, where the aba flower-like shade stands out from a darker base.
