Product Description

Luxuriously soft and warm yet hard-wearing scarf, half of which is made from the downy wool of the indomitable Yak! The other half is pure silk which makes for a lighter scarf which, combined with its large size makes this scarf among the most decadent in our range.

Yak Khullu

The Yak is endemic to the nomadic way of life on the Tibetan plateau. Their milk is used to make cheese and butter and they are revered as partners in labour. What is little known are the amazing properties of their insulating layer of wool or Khullu, hand-picked from two year old animals. As soft as cashmere, warmer than merino and stronger than sheep wool it is a precious yet sustainable material and we want you to experience it for yourself this Spring!

Care instructions

Dry clean or hand-wash in cold water with a few drops of shampoo. Gentle steam iron.
