Long Felt Vest
A seamless, raw-felted vest in natural dark brown yak khullu in a long silhouette with seamless breast pockets. It features a graphic felted edging technique also seen in Norlha’s Ocean Blanket. Hems and edges are hand-felted to shape using a unique, zero-waste process mastered by Norlha artisans.
The khullu used to make this vest comes from brown-haired yak.

- Composition: 100% yak khullu
- Base colour: Natural Dark Brown Base- Care: 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 vest was made using the khullu of 4 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 9 artisans handmade this scarf at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 7 highly specialised processes.
- Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
