The fine silk-cotton yarn in this light weight, finely woven scarf contributes to its good drape and comfort for cool days or transitional seasons. Graduated shading and variable width define edge and border stripes. Graduated light to dark striping undulates across the center of the scarf, created by alternating thick and thin stripes, creating a moire effect in the central panel. The elegant end borders of the scarf are further accented with traditional inlaid motifs and patterned stripes created with a heavier black cotton yarn. Featherstitch twining secures the edge, and the braided fringe is finished with individual tassels.
