Our Kailash Merino Wool Meditation Shawl is available in two colors. This is the perfect wool shawl for meditators. We have named this shawl Kailash, after the sacred mountain in the Himalayas dear to Lord Shiva, the king of yogis.
Searching far and wide, we found the shawl that "checks the box" for every requirement and wish that yogis and meditators look for:
☑️ All natural, 100% Merino wool (not scratchy)
☑️ Large size to fully enwrap the body
☑️ Light yet warm
☑️ Simple, earthy colors
☑️ Natural dyes
☑️ Handwoven in India and certified Fair Trade.
This shawl is made from 100% pure Merino wool that gives it a soft and smooth texture.
It measures 50” X 100” - very large to fully cover the body!
It comes in ivory white and deep navy blue. Both colors emanate peace and grounding serenity.
This Fair-Trade product is made in India and your purchase of it goes a long way to help support the wonderful artisans that make these items and keep India's textile weaving traditions alive.
Care & Maintenance of Wool
With proper care any pure wool textile can last for years. But washing and cleaning wool by hand is an elaborate process. Please feel free to dry clean this gorgeous piece of textile if you prefer that.

It is best to lay it flat to dry. Otherwise fold it once or twice and lay it on a clothing rack so it can dry from both sides.

When it is partially dry, it can be hung on a clothesline (avoiding direct sunlight) to fully dry out without stretching out the fibers.
Once it is completely dry, it can be steamed our ironed with medium heat.
