Buddha Classic - Buddhist Meditation Shawl
COMPOSITION: 100% merino wool
SIZE: 100 x 250 cm / 40 x 100 in approx. (unique size)
DETAILS: With fringes
We named this shawl "Buddha Classic" because it is often bought for Buddhist monks living in monasteries in India and Nepal. It is also one of our most affordable shawls, which contributes to its popularity.
The texture of this shawl is a little less fine than most other shawls in our collection owing to its twill weave and to a less refined yarn. Its sizing is unique. Being slightly narrower than our large shawls and of similar length, it remains a very generous size for meditation.

Care and Maintenance
If the process described below does not suit you, you can certainly send the shawl for DRY CLEANING.
HOW TO WASH YOUR SHAWL SAFELY:
Dissolve a little quantity of mild detergent - like gentle shampoo or woolen soap - with cold or lukewarm water (at 30 °C /86 °F maximum)
Submerge the shawl in the water and move it gently for a few minutes. Do not use fabric softener and rinse the shawl very well by running cool water through it to remove the soap.
You can then take out extra water by applying gentle pressure. NEVER RING, NEVER TWIST.
Remove the excess water by rolling the shawl in a clean towel.
Preferably lay it flat. If not possible, fold it once or twice to prevent the fibres to be stretched too much and hang it on the clothes line in avoiding direct sun or any proximity to heat sources.
Once dry, if available, the shawl can be steamed which will fluff the fibres. Otherwise, it can be ironed with a warm iron.
