SHAWLS Shawls come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes with rectangles and squares being the most common. The best way to describe a shawl is to envision a large swath of cloth, designed to be wrapped loosely around the neck, shoulders, and upper body. Many shawls are also large enough to cover the head, should the wearer desire so.
SILK The fabric silk was originally reserved for the royalty with some examples of the textile found in 3,500 B.C. This is a soft, lustrous fiber obtained as a filament from the cocoon of the silkworm. Silk's absorbency make it comfortable to wear in warm or cold weather. Silk has natural luster which make it attractive for any garment that drapes
MODAL Modal is a semi-synthetic cellulose fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose, in this case often from beech trees. Modal is used alone or with other fibers (often cotton) in clothing and household items. Modal is processed under different conditions to produce a fiber that is stronger and more stable when it is wet than standard rayon, yet has a soft feel, similar to cotton. It can be tumble dried without damage due to its increased molecular alignment.The fabric has been known to pill less than cotton due to fiber properties and lower surface friction.
Caring for storing your scarves To hand-wash delicate items. fill a basin, bucket, or sink with slightly warm water and a detergent that has low Alkaline (like Woolite) or even baby shampoo. Submerge the scarf and gently twirl underwater for two minutes, making sure the detergent or shampoo has dissipated in the water. Rinse the scarf on a large towel, making sure to not pull or stretch out of shape. Fold the towel over the scarf and press down to rid the scarf of excess water. Hang on a drying rack to let it air-dry
Drawers Roll each scarf and store in a chest of drawers or armoire. Add lavender sachet or cedarwood chips.
