Product Description
Medium hazy squares. The singles yarn* used for this design imparts a soft look. The scale of repeat is about 1.75" square, and the weave is fairly closed.

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 washed and dried this in a lingerie bag to see if the texture of the weave would change in an interesting way and it came out very rough. I'm hoping that some steam and pressing will make it more wearable than it is right now.

Will try in larger size. Nice weight and drape. Small is very small after washing but that can be nice too.
