Handspun Nostalgia Blanket (Natural White Base)
This 100% yak khullu blanket is the heaviest weave produced at Norlha Atelier. Its handspun weft creates a densely textured, wave-like pattern with a ruggedly soft touch. It takes a Norlha artisan five days to spin enough thread for a single blanket. Its handspun threads are fringed along its length, while a line of contrasting thread runs along its top and bottom edges.
This blanket's naturally white fibre is entirely unbleached. White yak khullu is exceptionally rare, with only one in every thousand animals possessing an albino coat.
Sizing: 140 x 220cm
Finishing: 4cm fringe on both 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.
