All over Nepal the ubiquitious 'yak wool' shawl is sold to tourists. In reality, yak wool shawls worn by Tibetans and Nepali people are scratchy and expensive. Our shawls are made with 70% new zealand cotton/wool blend and 30% acrylic for a supple, warm and soft feel. Christy bought one of these from our friends in Thamel almost two years ago and she simply loves its durability, softness and warmth. She gets compliments everytime she wears it.
25" by 70" shawls are great for cold winters outdoors or as a meditation shawl and are equally at home on a man or a woman. Handmade in Kathmandu Nepal
