Handwoven in fine silk and high twist wool. The scarf is woven flat but when it comes off the loom and is finished, the extra twist in the wool is released giving the scarf that distinctive stretchy pleated look. The pleats are permanent.
Hand wash only, in warm water using a neutral soap suitable for silk or wool, dry flat. A warm iron on silk setting can be used on the plain board, but not on the patterned body of the scarf.
The width dimension above is taken for the body of the scarf. The boarders naturally flair out.
