SIZE: 125 x 250 cm / 50 x 100 in approx.
DETAILS: Without fringes
This shawl is an exclusive creation by one of our renowned artisans. Its perfect blend of hand-woven noble fibres gives it a unique texture. The herringbone weave and the play of double tones also help to give this shawl its exceptional character.
As with all shawls of great softness, this generous meditation blanket does not like excessive friction. To avoid pilling, it is best, when traveling, to keep it in a small sleeve/slip cover to prevent unnecessary frictions.
The angora fibre used in the creation of this shawl comes from angora rabbits living in the Himalayas. The gathering of the hair is done without hurting the rabbits.
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.
