These are 100% silk habotai scarves made in China with a hand rolled hem. These are a good choice for someone wanting to try silk scarves or add more colors without investing a huge amount of money. They make great gifts, especially stocking stuffers. I recommend hand washing in cold water separately with Dawn detergent. Twist in a dry towel to wring out excess water. Press with iron set on silk setting until dry being careful not to leave the iron in one spot too long. You may see some color wash out for the first few washings but this is normal and should decrease with time.
