Very Soft and light weight

I bought this after realizing that this is made from pure yak wool which is rare to find these days. This is going to be a collectible for me. Looking forward to do business with you again, LAXMI N.,  India

We live and work in a small village called Masrana which is outside Mussoorie town in the Himalayas. It is a beautiful and interesting area. Our house and dyeing workshop are on a ridge with a view of both the Himalayan peaks and Dehradun valley. Many of the villages around us are old and rich in the culture and architecture of the Garhwal Himalayas. Hope these photos will give you some idea of our surroundings.
