Larfin Yurts - Handmade Yurts in Portugal.
are based on a Turkic yurt design. These are bentwood yurts which have
roof poles that curve upward from the trellis wall allowing for more headroom
and added stability. Because there is no need for central poles to support
the roof the Turkic yurt has a more spacious open feeling inside.
For the covers we use modern high quality 100% cotton duck canvas which is water and rot proof, as well as fire retardent. We can offer either a fitted or a square roof cover. The square cover can be stretched out to provide additional shade and ventilation in the summer. Light enters the yurt through a window made of transparent PVC, and a removable roof light.
For the crown, you have the choice between wood or metal. The wooden crown is lighter in weight whereas the metal crown offers more scope for individual design by our metalwork artist.
For yurts intended
for permanent use, we can supply carded wool blanket insulation. The blanket
material is inserted between the trellis and the canvas cover. Pure wool
is one of the best insulation materials against cold, an important consideration
