Nomad Naturals Boiled Scarf
This intensely soft, oversized scarf features a striking asymmetrical, multi-toned design. It is woven from a unique combination of natural grey and dark brown khullu in the weft, and natural light brown and dark brown khullu in the warp. The finished fabric is boiled for added density and a fleece-like touch.
The khullu used to make this scarf is exceptionally rare, as only one in every thousand yak possesses a golden brown coat.

- Provenance: Handwoven at Norlha Atelier on the Tibetan Plateau using yak khullu sourced from local nomad cooperatives.
- Base colour: Yaks typically have a dark brown coat, but they can also be found in grey and, very rarely, in golden brown and white. Our artisans work with all four yak wool shades, which are either left in their natural state, combined to create different tones, or dyed.
- Yak khullu: This scarf was made using the khullu of 4 yak. Khullu is the ultra-fine, downy undercoat that keeps yak insulated during harsh Tibetan winters. Each summer, the yak naturally shed this down, which is then carefully collected by hand.
- Technique: Handwoven nad Hand sewn stitch
- Artisans & Processes: A team of 15 artisans handmade this scarf at Norlha Atelier. During its production, it went through 13 highly specialised processes.
