Handmade Woolen Scarves for Women

We make scarves using mill spun and hand-spun wool. For the latter, wool is hand-spun by Bhotia ladies in Dunda village in the Himalayas. While it was a common practice in the Himalayan villages to hand-spin wool, it is now confined to a handful of villages. We have a long-term association with Bhotia ladies in Dunda village, who spin some of our wool. We hand-dye this yarn with natural dyes to make hand-woven scarves in villages around Dehradun.

Scarves made with hand-spun wool are especial. They are very soft and warm, and have a lovely texture.
