When it comes to festival jackets you can’t forget about woollen jackets. These wonderfully warm jackets are handmade in Nepal from New Zealand lambs wool. Each woollen jacket is hand knitted by a group of ladies who spend their time sitting on the floor knitting and chatting. You’ll be surprised at how fast these ladies can knit a wool jacket, they have become so skilled at this craft that they barely look at what they are doing when creating these festival clothing items.
These woollen jackets are completed using a polar fleece lining which means you get an nice extra layer of warmth. Polar fleece is a synthetic material which has fantastic thermal properties. Combined with the natural wool you’ll find that these jackets are great at keeping you warm during the winter months.
