Tiny Nomad Baby Booties
100% handknitted yak wool baby booties. The first bootie, to keep baby’s feet warm. Timeless, soft and delicate.
The khullu used to make these pull-ups is an exceptionally rare fibre, as only one in every thousand yak possesses a white coat.
Sizing: 0–3 months

During the warmer months, clean and store your knitwear in a ziplock bag, preferably with moth repellent.
Provenance: Hand-knitted 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 beanie was made using the khullu of half a 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.
Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
