Nepal Himalayan cashmere is renowned as some of the softest cashmere in the world. Cashmere is very light and luxuriously soft yet keeps you extremely warm. It comes from the softest undercoat of a goat and it takes an average of three goats wool to make one scarf!
Dry clean or hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.
These throws are handloomed in Pokhara Nepal by blind, deaf, or disabled weavers. SLATE + SALT partners with a local non-profit organization that provides them with the tools, training, and support necessary to become independent through weaving. In Nepal, the disabled are discriminated against in mainstream society. They have little or no opportunities for work. Weaving allows them to enjoy an independent life, increases their self-esteem and also improves the way they are treated by their family. The organization further gives back to the disabled community by donating white canes, hearing aids and wheel-chairs, providing food, medicine and essential goods for aged-care homes, helping the poor and distributing relief to earthquake and landslide victims. With such a great cause, these are luxury you can feel good about!
Wrap yourself in cashmere! For those who care about quality, these cashmere scarves can be worn multiple ways and are the perfect accessory for layering on cold evenings.
