This shemagh is woven in Pakistan, using locally dyed yarn. It is machine-washable. 5col Survival Supply recommends that this shemagh be washed and dried by itself to set the colors prior to washing with other clothing. This type of scarf is made with a loose-weave, so that it breaths and retains moisture properly for its intended use. However, this means that imperfections should be expected and accepted. We sell this Shemagh as a utility item and useful tool, not as a fashion accessory.
