I normally wear it as a scarf, but (when needed) I can use it as the Arabs do to cover my head and face.
I live in a very windy, often dry and dusty environment. Being able to cover my face is sometimes necessary.
The material is soft, and it's big enough to tie as a head dress.
As someone else mentioned, make sure you hand wash it a couple times before using it. The dye does bleed quite a bit. Also, I would not recommend putting it in the dryer. I haven't done it, but I'm sure the material would shrink up.
One downside: Depending on where you live, people will probably look at you like you're a freak when you wear it to cover your head and face.
This scarf is super soft, spreads out to a generous 42"x 38" and easily folds to fit comfortably in a cargo pocket. It keeps my head and neck warm during the winter months and doubles as a sweat rag and mosquito barrier during the rest of the year. The orange color allows me to be seen on the trail and in a survival situation it could be used to signal distress or leave markers for rescue.
The design is "woven" into the fabric: what I mean by that is that the black strands are woven into the base color shemagh. The design is not "block-printed" onto the shemagh.
The first thing you have to do with this is to hand wash it in cold water and then hanging it to air dry. The dye/color will bleed. It did not leave stains on the shemagh after bleeding, which is good. It was just extra color that had to be washed off. If you don't do this and wear it and you sweat/shemagh gets wet with rain, it won't be a pretty sight...
I would recommend hand washing it. I have not tried it in the washer/dryer. I do not think it will shrink, but it feels ok to just hand wash. I don't get it too dirty that i feel like it needs to go through a full machine wash cycle.
I wear it as a scarf. It is large enough to wear as a headdress, which I sometimes do at home. Considering that I live in a major US city, I do not think it is a smart idea to cover my head and face, as some other reviewers have mentioned.
The shemagh is perfect in size. I have attached a photo where the shemagh is folded in half (it is almost exactly square) and I have placed a 13" Macbook Pro next to it for reference.
I am likely to return my shemagh, and I definitely would not buy this product again.
