Handgesponnene Garne

Where our fibers are born…

Our yarn line extends to the far-off places we love most, starting with the Mongolian country. We partner with nomadic herders from Mongolia, having mixed herds of yak, camel, sheep and goat herds. We support them by sourcing only fibers which are not affecting their rangelands and helping in that way to increase their livelihood.  We purchase 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.

Next step: spinning

Once we obtained the highest quality our fibers are sent to Nepal. Where we continue our journey in Kathmandu with a group of highly skilled women who are hand spinning our yarns. The full line is dyed locally in Kathmandu with colors not affecting the environment to create our own ever-expanding range of vibrant colors. Also, our 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 our team in Kathmandu on a daily base and creates a better life for our spinners and their families.

Each purchase you make is the start of something great

Not only will you be making something incredible with your hands but also support communities with vibrant fiber traditions. We founded Nomad Noos with the goal of investing in the nomads and hand spinning communities with which we work. As we grow, we will invest a percentage of our profits in programs that directly benefit our partners. We aim to take you on that journey as we explore our partner communities needs

Sustainable development goals

We implement the hereunder featured SDG’s in the Nomadnoos brand and help in a positive way to eradicate poverty, hunger, improve gender equality and provide decent work and economic growth for all our spinners. We source our fibers with the highest respect for the life on land from nomadic herders.
