Sometimes simplicity is the best, and our range of woolen pashmina shawls in solid plain colours certainly falls into that category. The warm sand coloured pashmina. We experimented with various different 100% wool yarns in our determination to bring you a 100% wool scarf that could be used as a long warm scarf in the cooler weather or as a light weight woolen shawl on a Spring or Autumn evening. These fair trade shawls measure about six feet long by twenty seven inches wide and are woven by our weavers in Bihar, N E India from a very fine soft pure wool yarn with each piece weighing in at approximately 65gms. They are finished with a short self-fringe on either end which is in keeping with the unfussy simple nature of the product.
Wool has so many wonderful properties which has made it the number one choice in natural yarns for insulation. Not only does it have that warm snuggly feel and lovely springy feeling when you squeeze it but it’s light and incredibly crease resistant, unlike most man made fibres. And whilst it will keep you warm it still breathes which means you are less likely to become uncomfortably hot and start sweating.
