Description: A plain hand spun and hand woven reddish-brown tabby woollen shawl. The ends are fringed.

A shawl is an extremely simple item of clothing, loosely worn over the shoulders, upper body and arms, sometimes also over the head. It is usually a rectangular or square piece of cloth, often folded to make a triangle, but can also be triangular in shape to begin with. Other shapes include oblong shawls. _ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawl_
