Delicate Handspun Newborn Blanket
This luxurious baby blanket is handspun and handwoven from 100% natural white yak khullu. It is exceptionally light and delicately soft, offering soothing warmth for newborns. It takes a Norlha artisan 15 days to spin enough thread for one blanket, a process which involves combining five different colours of dyed yak wool into a single thread, creating a remarkable multi-coloured effect.
This blanket's naturally white fibre base is entirely unbleached. White yak khullu is exceptionally rare, with only one in every thousand animals possessing an albino coat.
Sizing: 90 x 110cm
Finishing: 1cm Fringe on two sides
Composition: 100% White 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.
