Product Description
Medium lacey stripe. Vertical 1" stripes of smooth weave interchanged with same-size stripes of a lacey pattern. The overall effect is fairly closed, and the yarn is a 2-ply*.

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 love the look and feel of these scarves--substantial yet feminine. The cotton thread is tightly spun or there is some resistant internal size so colors stamped printed or painted on may not penetrate evenly.

I bought some of these to dye this weekend and WOW! The Dharma fiber reactive dyes worked great. I dyed two of them with the sage green and the color is a wonderful muted green with subtle tonal changes. I used low the low water technique in Color by Accident. They do vary in yarn tones one of the styles was a bit darker and dyes darker. Both of them are yummy! Buy some!

These are wonderful lightweight scarves that take dye well. BEWARE - they MUST be prewashed in Dharma textile detergent or Synthropol. There is a lot of yellow dye to wash out but they end up a good natural color.

The scarves are even more beautiful and scrumptious in real life. Can't wait to dye them and order more.
