Handmade Nepalese 'Yak Wool' Shawl Rose Burgundy Oversized Scarf / Yoga Blanket

Size Guide

Our Rose Burgundy Nepali shawl is handmade from a mix of richly coloured yarns, that combine to create a gorgeously warm shawl/oversize scarf.

Our beautiful, soft and cosy Nepalese shawls are sourced directly from Kathmandu, where these lovely hand-loomed items are created by skilled local artisans. Each shawl is approximately 80 x 190cm and, although known as 'yak wool', they're made from a blend of cotton and acrylic fibres making them light and soft but also very warm and durable: perfect for chilly days and cold nights. They can be worn as shawl, as an oversized scarf or used to keep you warm when meditating or cooling down after a yoga session.

Our soft and cosy Nepali shawls are a popular gift item in our Dalston store, so why not warm the heart of a loved one this season? They come in a wide variety of colours - browse the full range of our hand-loomed shawls and scarves.

Please note

These shawls are hand-loomed, so there may occasionally be a loose thread or other minor imperfections. The exact colour of the shawls may differ slightly depending on your monitor or mobile device.

Care instructions

To keep your Nepali scarf / shawl at its best, wash it using a delicate wash setting, at no hotter than 30°C (86°F), and then hang it out to dry.

Vintage Sizing and Measurements

Vintage sizing and modern sizing can be very different. Because of this, we provide detailed measurements of all vintage clothing to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly. An assessment of the estimated modern size will be noted, as well as any sizes on the tag, but please refer to measurements to best determine fit.

A good way to determine fit:

* Find a similar item in your wardrobe.
* Measure it according to our measurement guidelines.
* Compare your measurements to those of the vintage item you are interested in.
* You're done. If it's a good fit, make it yours!

We do occasionally pin clothing to fit our models, so please read all measurements carefully. We do not accept returns for vintage merchandise that does not fit. If you have any questions about our sizing/measurements, please contact us at info@meroretro.com.
