Product Description
Small vertical stripe. This is a moderately closed weave, with fine 2-ply yarn*, composed of vertical 1/2" stripes of alternating loose and closed weave. No open spaces.

We found a small village on the island of Java in Indonesia where the men handweave these cotton scarves and shawls on handmade wooden looms. The intricate openwork patterns have been handed down through the generations, father to son. The natural cotton thread is purchased in big "hanks" and wound onto spools using old bicycle rims. The loom is then "dressed" which is very time consuming. The weaving itself then goes relatively quickly. We are getting them in 11 patterns, each in 4 sizes. Being completely handmade, the charm is in the irregularities and the sizes are approximate. They can be dyed and tie-dyed with our Fiber Reactive dyes into any of 100 colors. Because of how long they take to make and get here, we can't be sure they will always be in stock, so get 'em while we got 'em.

*There are two types of cotton yarn used in these scarves,
1) "Singles" yarn, meaning single-ply yarn, is used in scarf styles 2, 7 and 9.
2) The other scarves are woven with a fine 2-ply yarn.

Due to the handmade nature of this item all sizes are approximate.
Shrinkage: Expect approximately 10% shrinkage in both directions, with hand washing and line drying. Keep them away from your washer and dryer.
Each size has an additional 2-4 inch fringe on the two ends.
Made in: INDONESIA (ID)

there is a reason this one is sold out in 14x72--it is the 'right' scarf of the moment. Very versatilehas a good hand and subtle weave the fringe holds up well to processing. Finished product has a nice crinkly volume but remains soft.

One person in my group was disappointed but I think the texture is great. Excellent weight for summer. Interesting "ribbed" effect after wash and line dry.

Be sure to wash before dying..and watch it shrink. You can stretch it out after it's dry

Fabulous!!! The price and workmanship are remarkable.I am using these two to a window for curtain panels in our living and dining room. Simply knot two or more fringes at top and mount on dowelsbrackets (homemade in our case). They are unique and beautiful!

Did not care for the texture that these scarves have once they have been dyed. Ironing did not help!
