Nomad Classic Scarf (Natural White Base)
The very first piece to be created at Norlha Atelier, the Nomad Classic is the quintessential yak khullu scarf. With a 100% yak wool warp and weft, its slightly rugged, densely soft weave is created by one artisan using a four-pedal loom. A favourite among Ritoma’s local nomads, who wear these scarves year-round, the Classic is truly representative of life on the plateau.
This scarf’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.

Care: Use a mild detergent or regular shampoo and carefully hand-wash by submerging in cold water for 10–15 minutes. Alternatively, dry clean or 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.
