Handmade Nepalese Zigzag Shawl / Scarf / Yoga Blanket

Size Guide

These gorgeous zigzag patterned Nepali shawls are sourced directly from the Kathmandu-based creators of all our beautiful hand-loomed and hand-finished shawls. They measure 66 x 182cm (26"x72") and are available in 3 colour styles. They can be worn as shawl, as an oversized scarf or used to keep you warm when meditating.

Made from a mix of wool, cotton and acrylic fibers, these shawls are light but tightly woven, making them surprisingly warm as well as soft and cosy to wear. Ideal for wrapping up on a chilly day or a cold evening around the campfire, these shawls will suit any intrepid traveller, as they're resistant to creasing and fold away into a small, light bundle.

These shawls come in 3 colour variations.

A) 'Campfire': black, tan, dark brown, rust, biege 

B) 'Ridgeline': red, tan, black, navy blue, white

C) 'Festival': black, red, dark lavender, rouge pink, biege

If you're looking for a plain coloured shawl or bolder brighter colours, please have a look at our other Nepali 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 shawl in tip top condition, 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.
