Passage Felted Scarf
This double-sided scarf features a fine yak khullu and silk gauze, which is felted onto a fibre made from 100% yak khullu. The combined fabrics create a delicate textural and tonal contrast accentuated by the scarf’s raw fringing. A split at the neck allows for one end of the scarf to be threaded through the other.
The khullu used to make this scarf is a rare fibre, as only one in every hundred yak possesses a grey coat.
