Description: This scarf is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team member Vishwanath in Himachal Pradesh. It is woven with soft lambswool from our nomadic team in Changthang in Ladakh as well as fine eri silk from our team in Assam. The lambswool is taken once in a lifetime of a young sheep. It is extremely soft and warm, as the sheep live at an altitude between 4000m - 5000m. The eri silk is cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is also called peace silk as the moth has to leave the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed.
