Chic River Blanket
This delicately textured yak khullu and silk-blend blanket is woven on a 400-head jacquard loom using a chain of paper cards which are hand-punched at Norlha Atelier. It is comprised of two lengths of fabric which are handstitched together to give the blanket its width. Incredibly durable and resistant to pilling, this combination of yak wool and silk offers strength and exceptional softness.
Sizing: 140 x 220cm
Finishing: Matted fringe of 2cm in the upper and lower sides
Composition: 70% Yak khullu, 30% Silk

Care: Use a mild detergent or regular shampoo and carefully hand-wash by submerging in cold water for 10–15 minutes. Alternatively, machine wash using the cold, delicate setting. Dry flat or on a clothesline away from direct sunlight; do not wring dry or tumble dry. To keep the fibre in optimal condition, gently steam iron. During the warmer months, clean and store your blanket in a ziplock bag, preferably with moth repellent.
