Woollen Chaddar & Khasto/ Blanket Weaving


The woollen chaddar and khasto form an important part of the spectrum of Nepalese textiles. The raw wool is processed and the threads spun out on the spinning wheel (charkha). The threads are then dyed with natural dyes and sun dried after which they are woven on a small loom. The weaving tradition followed is similar to that followed for cotton weaving.
