After the incredible popularity of these 100% yak wool shawls last year we were thrilled to be able to restock.
With new designs and patterns, these huge and super soft shawls are sure to be just as popular this year.
“my yak scarf is so warm and unique, thank you I love it!”
“my yak blanket is the warmest scarf I have ever worn”
Yaks are herd animals, they have firm, dense horns which they use to break through the snow in order to reach the plants buried underneath. They have a dense undercoat covered by outer hair, almost long enough to reach the ground, which is usually dark brown or black in colour.
Yaks live for up to 20 years in herds of 10 to up to 100 animals. Yaks can endure winter temperatures on the Nepal and Tibetan plateau of -40 and are used by Sherpas to escort tourists up Mount Everest. The yaks split hooves help in their stability up the mountains’ rocky and icy terrain.
Hand-loomed by artisans in Nepal the shawl is reversible and can be used as a super large scarf, a wrap, or as a throw on your bed or sofa. A perfect accessory for those country walks and socially distanced meetings with friends!
