"Thopdan" the grandpa yeti is known for his unconventional wisdom. Ritoma nomads are familiar with yetis and are quite sure that, unlike wolves, they will not snatch their sheep or yaks or eat their children.Spotting one is rare, since they are more elusive than marmots, and certainly less noisy. They are not nearly as big as described in European literature or have any history of frightening travelers. Yetis are friendly, shy and playful. They live in rocky areas high in the pasture and mostly keep to themselves.

Yak Khullu's Important Benefits

Yaks survive in one of the world's harshest environments thanks to a thick layer of down called khullu that protects them from the extreme cold. Soft and enduring, the unique properties of yak khullu translate into a range of exceptional products. Khullu naturally molts at the end of winter and the yak's fiber is gathered at that time, before it falls, in a process that is natural and peaceful.


Khullu is a fiber of many virtues, one of which is durability. We carefully select the finest quality fiber from thousands of animals from across the Tibetan plateau and process it without bleaching.


Yaks are neither clipped nor combed for their fiber and are never deprived of their natural protection. Khullu is gently detached from the yaks during their natural molting season.


Norlha uses only the softest possible khullu, the baby yak's first molt. Baby yaks, called yeko, are born with a soft layer of down that they shed at the end of their second year.


Khullu, which grows under yaks' characteristic black hair, functions as the yaks' primary insulation from the harsh cold of winters on the Tibetan plateau.
