Bhutanese hand-spun woolen yarn



The woolen cloth shown above is
from central Bhutan,
where it is known as yathra.
Woven in twill weave on a horizontal frame loom
and patterned with supplementary wefts,
yathra served as as a blanket or seat cover.
While this cloth is made of two joined panels,
similar wool pieces of three panels served
as rain cloaks.
This is made from sheep's wool, but yak wool was
also woven.
Formerly, certain areas of Bhutan paid their taxes
in lengths of wool cloth.

***
From the Bumthang region of Bhutan,
this engaging textile is used as a 'raincloak',
with its lustrous wool an effective protection
against the inclement weather of the Himalayas.
Made from a single length of loomed 'yathra',
which is cut into panels and sewn together,
it is unique to this area which is justifiably famous
for these weavings.
These textiles are disappearing as new products
and materials become available.
