Handmade Nepalese Reversible Shawl / Scarf / Yoga Blanket

This thick and super warm reversible Nepalese shawl is approximately 72 x 190cm (28" x 74"), large enough to use as a small blanket or throw. Made from a combination of wool, cotton and acrylic fibers, it's soft to the touch and very cosy to wear. It can be worn as shawl, used as a blanket, to keep you warm when meditating or rolled to support your knees when doing yoga.

The unique design of these shawls means that each side has a distinctly different character. Threads of white, green, tan and blue-grey are carefully woven to form thick bands of solid colour on one side and, on the other, a chequerboard design with intricately woven triangular motifs at each end. 

Although soft and light, these shawls are thicker and more substantial than our popular 'yak wool' style shawls and are guaranteed to keep you warm whatever the conditions.

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.
