  • Small batch, hand-dyed merino wool

    We are ever so pleased to welcome the latest project from Shangdrok, the makers of our Tibetan hand-spun yak down collection. These beloved partners of ours are at it again—they're channelling their fiber prowess into this skillfully hand-dyed line. And each of these unique colorways are featured on the softest, squishiest, super fine merino.

    This collection is extra special in that it's hand-dyed by Shangdrok's founder, April Tang, herself. April is a social entrepreneur who not only founded an incredibly impactful initiative to support and preserve the artforms of nomad women on the Tibetan Plateau but has also created a hand-dyeing studio (and indie dye movement!) in Taiwan. Your love for this yarn makes all of the above possible (so huge thanks to you).

    Many customers like pairing this collection with the corresponding colors in Shangdrok Mohair Silk. See images for color combo inspiration.
