Nomad Trails Oversized Shawl / Blanket
Using only two of the four peddles on the loom, our Master weaver developed this loose weave resulting in an especially soft oversized wraparound shawl. The Forest Green shawl features details of handspun threads woven through it
It takes around four yaks to create this piece. Each yak on average naturally sheds 500 grams of khullu at the end of each spring, and after the wool has been cleaned there is at most 15% wool which can be woven.
Composition: 100% yak khullu
Size: 110 × 220 cm
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.
