Autumn is coming, and so is the Norlha blanket
A relatively new concept on the plateau, yak khullu blankets made by Norlha bring out the richness and warmth of this remarkable fiber. In the old days, people slept in sheepskin lined cloth which they snuggled in like in a sleeping bag, or, in deep nomad areas, walked and slept in different forms of sheepskins; sewn into clothing, or used as mats. Woven cloth, the finest made from handspun lamb’s wool woven on back strap looms, were highly prized items used to make summer chubas for both men and women. Norlha blankets are among our finest offerings; our handspun collection melts in the hand and surrounds one in a cloud of comfort. Bold or subtle in color, they reflect the hues of the ever changing pasture.
