~* Peacock Shawl Scarf *~
These gorgeous blanket shawls are super popular during the cool winter months in Nepal, and it is easy to see why! The cotton blend is super soft with no itchiness even on sensitive skin, and is really warm and windproof too. The shawls come in an endless array of beautiful designs, this one has the prettiest peacock pattern on it, with feather motifs placed with beautiful peacock-esque grace. This peacock shawl design is stylish, but still fun. Big enough to use as a lap blanket or shawl, but also comfortable to wear bunched around your neck as a super warm and snuggly scarf. We keep one on the sofa to use as a blanket, and I’ve always got one in the car too for when its a bit chillier than I expected on those blustery spring and autumn days!
The use of peacocks and their feathers is traditional in Nepali design. The colours on this shawl are lovely, and all the sections fit together to make a truly beautiful and eye catching shawl. It is reversible so you don’t need to worry about the wrong side showing, as there are only right sides! The shawl can be worn in a variety of ways to suit your style and outfit. I’ve worn mine as a scarf, a shawl, a blanket and even a headscarf in the desert!

You may see similar items to these being marketed as “Yak Wool” shawls. Please be aware that this is a nickname for the product, rather than a description. They are NOT made of yak wool, as it is extremely expensive, very rough and not at all pleasant to wear! We are honest with our customers because we believe that you deserve to know the truth about what you are buying.
Please note that the exact colour and pattern of the peacock scarf may differ slightly from that pictured, this is due to all items being handmade from handwoven fabrics. This is not a fault and is part of the unique charm of the product.
