  • Hand woven by Weavers of the Tibetan Plateau

    Our shawls have been hand woven out of the finest hand spun Yak Wool, whose fiber is purchased from local nomads on the surrounding plateau. Warmer than Merino and as soft as Cashmere, we will be going everywhere with these pieces yearround.

    Local nomads from the Tibetan Plateau gather the softest hairs from the undercoats of the Yak. These are sold to the artisans who delicately hand spin and hand weave each shawl. 

    • 100% Yak Wool
    • Size: 90cm x 190cm / Approx. 35" x 75"
    • Color: Natural grey (looks more brown) and rare natural white from the albino yak
    • Hand rolled edges
    • Pictured on model 1.66 meters tall
    • Please note that the size of each piece can vary slightly due to its handcrafted nature 

     

  • We recommend dry cleaning, but these pieces can also be machine washed in the wool cycle. Using a mild detergent meant for wool, place the shawls in a laundry net and wash in cold water.  Line dry.  If needed, iron on the wool setting.
