Solid cobalt blue cashmere ribbed knit throw.
Cashmere has been prized as a luxury fiber since the days of ancient Rome, and so it remains today. Mongolia is among the world's leading producers of cashmere, and herders hand-comb their animals thus preserving the long and fine fibers that are supplied to the most exclusive fashion houses in Italy, France and Scotland. This relaxed solid-color cashmere ribbed knit throw is classic and accentuates any room with luxury.
This unique collection of yak down, baby camel, and cashmere blankets and throws are knit and woven in Mongolia from hand-combed natural fibers, ensuring that the value-added remains in-country for the herder families, and the knitters and weavers with whom are partners.
Approx. 50" x 78"
ABOUT THE MAKERS
Created by a family-owned and run business. Based in Basalt, Colorado with a presence in Mongolia where fibers are sourced and where the makers have lived and worked for more than a decade.
This unique collection of yak down, baby camel and cashmere blankets and throws are knit and woven exclusively in Mongolia from hand-combed natural fibers, ensuring that the value-added production remains in-country for the herder families, the knitters and the weavers with whom we partner.
Rare yak down is a passion because it is exquisitely soft, warm and, unbleached and undyed. Yak have a special sustainability story. Yak are relatively light on the land because they graze without uprooting the native steppe grasses like other animals. The yak down used to weave and knit these throws and blankets is sourced largely from the Hangai mountains. The Hangai are located in Mongolia’s central heartland.
Business partners include herder families, local associations and cooperatives, as well as knitters and weavers who share our values that embrace fair trade, sustainable production, local empowerment, and traceability.
Together with Mongolian and U.S. entrepreneurs, the makers are building an international brand that showcases Mongolia’s extraordinary natural fibers and in this fashion are also helping preserve tradition and culture.
