A hand-felted overcoat made from natural dark brown yak khullu. It is constructed with a single seam at the side and shoulder, with generous folding lapels and a stand collar that sits high on the neck. Cocooned sleeves give space for layering and fade into a natural grey with a subtle dégradé at the cuff. Hems and edges are hand-felted to shape using a unique, zero-waste process mastered by Norlha artisans.
It can be worn open or tied with a traditional yak hair belt.

- Composition: 100% yak khullu
- Base colour: Natural Dark Brown & Natural Grey Base
- Care: Eco dry clean only
- Provenance: Handfelted at Norlha Atelier on the Tibetan Plateau using yak khullu sourced from local nomad cooperatives.
- Base colour: Yaks typically have a dark brown coat, but they can also be found in grey and, very rarely, in golden brown and white. Our artisans work with all four yak wool shades, which are either left in their natural state, combined to create different tones, or dyed.
- Yak khullu: This overcoat was made using the khullu of 8 yak. Khullu is the ultra-fine, downy undercoat that keeps yak insulated during harsh Tibetan winters. Each summer, the yak naturally shed this down, which is then carefully collected by hand.
- Technique: Hand felted and Hand sewn
- Artisans & Processes: A team of 12 artisans handmade this scarf at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 10 highly specialised processes.
- Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
