Description

This 100% yak khullu blanket is the heaviest weave produced at Norlha Atelier. Its handspun weft creates a densely textured, wave-like pattern with a ruggedly soft touch. It takes a Norlha artisan five days to spin enough thread for a single blanket. Its handspun threads are fringed along its length, while a line of contrasting thread runs along its top and bottom edges.

Garment journey
  •  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 blanket was made using the khullu of 48 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: Handspun & Handwoven
  •  Artisans & Processes: A team of 15 artisans handmade this throw at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 13 highly specialised processes.
  •  Shipping: All orders are packed with care and shipped from our atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
