Honest Size and Materials Description -
on September 4, 2015
So nice to receive a product that is as advertised, the size is correct and accounts for the usable dimensions of the product and does not count in the tassels as part of the measurements like other re-sellers do. I ordered this one and another from a different manufacturer and re-seller. I kept this one and sent the other one back as it was not as advertised, to small, not cotton.
Material is cotton, not a synthetic, soft but I am not sure how durable this is going to be. Thread count should be 125 per inch, this is more like 75, very loose weave, easily snags.
I hand washed and rinsed right out of the packaging bag, picture is the shemagh air drying out on the line. The other two photos show loose weave and manufacture defect in the loom weaving process I would suppose. Contacted re-seller who indicated that they could not take it back because I had already washed it. Well, Amazon satisfaction guarantee trumps that but I will just hang onto this anyway because I really like the light weight of the material and design.
Be cautious however - you may want to spend a few extra dollars and get a tighter weave (thread count / threads per inch) if you really need to have a better dust / sand filter to breath through, and something that will not tear easily if it is pulled across a zipper tap, a goggles strap, or the like.
