Nomad Classic Throw (Natural Grey Base)
Created by one artisan using a four-pedal loom, the Nomad Classic is the quintessential yak khullu weave and the very first to be made at Norlha Atelier. It is slightly rugged and densely soft, with a 100% yak wool warp and weft. This versatile throw can be used as a blanket or worn as an oversized shawl, as is common on the plateau.
The natural base colour of this scarf comes from grey-haired yak. Rarer than the common brown yak, only one one in every hundred animals have paler grey wool.
Sizing: 110 x 220cm
Finishing: 2 sides (Upper and lower) fringe
Composition: 100% Grey Yak khullu
Provenance: Handwoven at Norlha's atelier on the Tibetan Plateau.
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.
