Plateau Carreau Scarf
This feather-light scarf is made from a yak khullu and silk-blend. It requires great skill and patience for a weaver to create its checked pattern, which is painstakingly woven by hand. Its silk yarn is pre-dyed before the entire scarf is overdyed, creating a subtle tone-on-tone effect.
Composition: 50% yak khullu, 50% silk
Size: 50 × 190 cm
Finishing: Hand-sewn rolled edge
Weight: 70 g
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 scarf in a ziplock bag, preferably with moth repellent.
