Nomad noos - Sheep goes Bananas - Dulche de leche
hand make create
Nomad noos 'Sheep goes bananas' yarn comes from a sheep called Bhyanglung sheep. These sheep live in Nepal above 2500 m and are generally found in the rain shadow areas of the inner Himalayan valleys of Northern Nepal, close to the Tibetan border.
This wool has a tougher appearance due to its sturdy wool hairs. This yarn is then blended with banana fibre to give it a shiny aspect and a softer touch. This yarn is artisanally spun in a small workshop in Kathmandu. It also gives a beautiful heather colour after dyeing because both animal and plant fibre react in a different way to the colour.
*** Nomad noos yarns are handspun by qualified spinners and hand dyed by qualified dyers, using ZDHC dyeing colours.
