Nomadnoos is made up of a team of people collaborating to deliver the most beautiful and softest hand-spun or mechanical-spun hand-dyed yarn made in a transparent and fairway.
Today’s consumers are more and more intrigued by and educated about products that fulfill their expectations towards sustainability and transparency. We believe that to remain a relevant market player, in the long run, companies need to act responsibly and their business strategies need to genuinely embrace aspects such as environmental and social care.
That is why Nomadnoos exists:
To create value while delivering hand & artisanally spun and sustainably sourced yarns for knitters while following the ‘Slow Fashion’ principles.
Slow Fashion can be described as an awareness and approach which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and value the fair treatment of people, animals, and the planet. Knitters from over the world can purchase Nomadnoos high-quality and exclusive luxury yarns, sourced from herders in Mongolia and by women living in developing countries.
With our NGO Terre Filanti, we create projects supporting our spinners and herders.
Our Mission and Values
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
