Zarpo Nomad Throw, Cashmere & Silk

$359

 Zarpo -  Ladhaki for steep

This throw is a blend of 50% non-violent silk in its natural color from Assam, woven together with 50% of the finest cashmere wool from mountain goats of the high-altitude plains of Changtang in northern Ladakh, bordering Tibet, which makes it very soft and warm and the silk brings a lightness to it. 

Both fibers are entirely handspun and handwoven by our master weaver Ravi in Himachal Pradesh and weaver Kalita in Assam, which gives it the natural feel of a handmade product (as opposed to a machine-made product) which gives it a texture that is more uneven and more 'real' looking and feeling.
