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.
- measurements: 35 × 180 cm

- 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.
