Prince Light Scarf
An immensely soft and lightweight scarf made from the world’s finest yak khullu. This particular weave is even lighter than our classic Prince scarf. Its thread is incredibly delicate but gains remarkable strength as it is painstakingly handwoven in our atelier.
The khullu used to make the Dark Blue, Turquoise and Natural White coloured scarves is an exceptionally rare fibre, as only one in every thousand yak possesses a white coat.
The khullu used to make the Cement coloured scarf is a rare fibre, as only one in every hundred yak possesses a grey coat.

- Provenance: Handwoven 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 scarf was made using the khullu of 1 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: Handwoven
- Artisans & Processes: A team of 14 artisans handmade this scarf at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 12 highly specialised processes.
- Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
