Nomadnoos' yarn line extends to the far-off places they love most, starting with the Mongolian country. They partner with nomadic herders from Mongolia, having mixed herds of yak, camel, sheep and goat herds. They support them by sourcing only fibers which are not affecting their rangelands and helping in that way to increase their livelihood. Nomadnoos purchases directly from them the most precious fibers which are sent for washing and carding to a processing factory in the main city of the country, Ulaan Bator, using a water recycle system to protect in the most effective way the local environment. Once the yarns obtained the highest quality, their fibers are sent to Nepal, where they continue their journey in Kathmandu with a group of highly skilled women who are hand spinning the yarns. The full line is dyed locally in Kathmandu with colors not affecting the environment to create their typical ever-expanding range of vibrant colors. Also, the workshop in Kathmandu does have a water recycling plant integrated, where all the used water is recycled and can be re-used again. Hand spinning brings a consistent income for Nomadnoos' team in Kathmandu on a daily base and creates a better life for our spinners and their families. Not only will you be making something incredible with your hands but also support communities with vibrant fiber traditions. We founded Nomadnoos with the goal of investing in the nomads and hand spinning communities with which they work. As they grow, they will invest a percentage of our profits in programs that directly benefit their partners. We aim to take you on that journey as we explore our partner communities needs.
