Product Description
Horizontal shadow plaid. A fairly closed weave, with singles yarn*, comprised of 3/4" horizontal stripes of alternating dense and loose weave, and more subtle vertical stripes of the same width. The scale of repeat is 1.5" square. 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)

I was as pretty as I had hoped it dyed up beautifully. Even though I had intended it as a gift I decided to keep it for myself. I will just have to make something else for that person.

These are amazing! Everyone loves them! They take colour so beautifully. The drape is gorgeous no matter how you wrap or tie it. Nice as shown but if you put them in the dryer they pucker up into a wonderful very trendy texture. They'll shrink a tad but you'll love the look!

Some of my study group preferred these because they are so open and inexpensive. I really liked the Open weave. These are a terrific length for the new styles of scarves.

These scarves are impossible. The loose weave is disturbed during the wash out leaving everything a bit stretched and the dye was resisted in little small random spots even after 2 prewashes and soda soak. I will defintately not be buying this item any longer

I have purchased many of these scarves. They dye up beautifully and my customers love the feel and design.And they appreciate supporting the villiage that they came from.

I love these scarves. They get better with washing and use. We did an indigo tie dye project with them that was very successful.

The only problem is that you can't see the pattern clearly on the website.
