lung-rak (Ladakhi) - wind storm

This beanie is hand-spun and hand-knitted by our team in Himachal Pradesh. The beanie is knitted with lambswool from the Changthang Plateau shorn by the nomad community. The yarn used is a mélange of dark brown and beige wool. The lambswool is taken once of the young sheep at an age of around 7 months and has a fiber length of 100mm. Therefore it is soft and elastic.

Please note: This product is entirely made by hand. Therefore, irregularities in thickness of yarn are characteristic to the craft of handspinning. The fabric and the dye will change over time - the wool is becoming softer and the dyes lighter.  Please cold wash only with mild detergent and dry in the shade. Do not soak.
