Women love unique shawls and scarves and some are willing to pay a higher price and strive to get a yarn like chiffon silk shawls for the warmer seasons and Cashmere Pashmina wool for colder seasons as these are top choices in ladies seasonal accessories. Some women will tell you they want many shawls and scarves for their seasonal wardrobes and will only buy them at an affordable price. Very price conscious consumers do not care about content as long as it looks and feels good. So satisfying all different needs means a store must have a wide selection of shawls and wraps. Most stores whether at the mall or online like to cater to all the customer tastes and needs so the choice is huge. Shopping such stores is easier when you know what you want so you focus on that and get a great deal. This information should make shawl shopping online easier if you know what you are looking for so you can search the right keywords like silk evening shawls, affordable wool shawls, cashmere pashmina wraps. If you know what you want putting some detail in keywords is a good idea like silver evening wrap or 4 ply cashmere shawls.

Silk shawls are popular for spring and summer in the USA and in many countries popular for year round wear. 90% of silk producers are in Asia. If you are looking for a real fine chiffon silk shawl wrap go in for one made in India, China, Japan, Spain, Thailand, Korea, Vietnam & Malaysia. China is the single most  biggest supplier of silk to the world market since many decades. Silk Trading originated in China and Alexander the great took it to Europe. The major silk consuming countries are USA, UK, France, Germany & Switzerland.
Silk shawls are lustrous, luxurious with a lovely drape and resilient. The cultivation of silk worms in order to produce silk is called Sericulture. It involved breeding the silk worms, feeding the larva with mulberry leaves. Then comes destroying  the chrysalis (which would normally come through as a moth) so that it does not break the silk filament. Followed by Filature which involves sorting and softening the cocoons, reeling the filament onto wheels, then comes formation of the silk yarn, degumming for added softness and sheen and finally finishing the silk fabrics with the dye. Left over silk can be spun and this silk is still good if not as superior. The process has not changed over the years. Many manufacturers have starting producing synthetic competitors like nylon, polyester and acetate but silk retains its superiority.

Fine wool shawls are the biggest sellers for the fall season also called autumn and for winter wear.  Fine wool comes in many varieties like Cashmere Pashmina Shawls and Merino wool shawls that are so very popular for their soft, luxurious and protective warmth. Sometimes lamb’s wool and sheep wool can be slightly coarse hence itchy to very sensitive skin. Cashmere Pashmina from the Changthangi mountain goats around Himalayas is super soft, light yet very protective and most are less than 19 microns and are woven to make beautiful shawls. These shawls are pricier especially those under 14 microns. Cashmere Pashmina wool varies in grade from A to D and all of the grades are really fine and good. Buying shawls online is an affordable proposition as overheads are minimal and this will give consumers a far better deal than buying from a department store at the mall.  Enjoy a unique selection of online shawls and wraps.

Useful Information on Shawl Scarves Origin and Pashmina Shawls

The first shawl was worn in Assyrian times – it was called “shal” and from there its use moved to the Middle East. Males wore shawls too at the time as they still do in parts of India.  A Shawl used to be cloth loosely worn to cover the shoulders or head of men and women in ancient days. A fine example is the finely woven Orenburg shawl which was akin in softness and fineness to the famous Shahtoosh which is now banned. A scarf is a smaller piece of cloth generally 12” x 64” intended to cover the neck area or head area.

The shawl usually woven is shaped in a rectangle most practical for coverage, or square, triangle, circular or oblong. It was and is even today generally sized at 26” x 72” with 3” fringe. The larger shawls for added coverage and warmth are generally 30” x 80” with 3” fringe. Shawls can have a 0.5” eyelash fringe or can be fringeless. The cloth is dyed to make seasonal colored shawls and wraps that women all over the world love. Depending on the weather women and men too in some parts of the world still wear shawls and scarves for warmth protection and style.

Kashmir in India was considered the textile capital of the world and shawls were hand woven  in Pashmina splendor with aari embroidery and intricate hand work. The ancient Kanikar shawls depicted trees, flower blossoms, mango shaped paisleys mostly nature in its intricate beauty. The Dourukha Kashmiri shawl was a woven masterpiece at the time.

Years later the “Naksha” in Persia akin to Jacquard loom popularized shawls with flowery paisley motifs & creepers and the ladies in France and UK were wearing these beautiful shawls by 1700’s. In 1803 the Kashmiri Needlework production was set to produce more shawls in higher quantities to meet the increasing demand of the shawls worldwide. Kashmir enjoyed exclusivity but with advent of Jacquard loom in Paisley Scotland the paisley shawls were mass produced in Europe and Kashmir lost its exclusivity.

The word Pashmina has Persian origin meaning  ‘Pashm’ or wool.  Soft Pashmina wool comes from the Chanthangi goats found in the high altitude of the Himalayan mountain range in Nepal. Here, the goats thrive in a severely cold environment and have developed a protective skin and special soft fine wool in their underfur which is then surrounded by slightly coarser fur/wool for their survival. This soft underfur of the Himalayan mountain goat when it is shed is the softest cashmere pashmina which is used by the cashmere weavers to hand weave shawls and wraps.

Light Silk Pashmina Shawls are ideal for spring & summer and the beginning of the cooler seasons. In colder part of fall & winter the Cashmere Pashmina wool shawl is preferred for its light weight but highly protective soft warmth. The shawls are made in a single layer on one ply or 2 layers or 2 ply and the 3-4 ply makes the shawls warmer, thicker  & plusher for cold winter shawls and cape wraps.

Some sites online have a niche market for handcrafted shawls in shimmery beauty, with seasonal motifs and scrolls for your bridal bridesmaid shawls, and unique evening shawls for your evening dresses and gowns. Nothing says I care more than an original shawl made for you in 1-2 days that can be customized in design and colors and ships from the USA. They make elegant unique  Holiday shawl gifts to treasure.

What are my Shawl Options for Fall and Winter

Online there are many shawls and wraps available in different yarns, woven, knit, crochet, in varying ply and weight and degree of warmth and softness so it is hard to decide what shawl is best for the season.  Fall is rather cool and late fall gets colder so I would start with at least a 2 ply warm shawl. Ply being a layer of yarn I would opt for a wool 2 ply and if you can afford it a cashmere wool is great. It is slightly pricier but worth it!  Wool of the finest quality light soft and delicate yet warm this cashmere pashmina wool has excited many women who love quality shawls and wraps.

As we get deeper into the fall season it gets much colder a 3 ply wool shawl is perfect. Some women who feel cold fast opt for the fall / winter shawl in 4 ply which is thicker, warmer and plush in its soft protective comfort.  You can buy a woven shawl it has a flat weave and drapes well. Some women love the close knit shawl in 3-4 ply as it becomes really soft and plush in feel. Other like a loose knit or big stitch knit which looks bulkier. Go with what you can carry and what type of shawl n\meets your needs for that time.

For a warm evening shawl I like the woven shawls in 4 ply cashmere – they look and feel great with an evening dress/gown. I have enjoyed many close knit shawls and scarves. They are slightly more bulkier but not heavy as cashmere is light but warm and women love that. To carry a lightweight shawl that still gives you good warmth is a pleasure. Having said that some women like that bulky wool heavy feel of a big ruana cape wrap so the choice is yours! Certainly Ruana wraps are awesome for long wide all round coverage and warmth and my mother who is a plus size woman seems to think she looks 2 sizes smaller in a ruana. So each of us have a preference depending on our needs.

 Want to be unique try an Indian Jamawar paisley designer shawl in its warm multicolor weaves. Most of them are reversible and it is a great option as the reverse looks totally different so it is almost as if you have 2 shawls at one price. Look for sales on wool shawls and try something creative like an embroidered shawl. For a casual look unitone embroidered shawls are great. For evening wear a black shawl with white or multicolored embroidered designing looks so chic.

Handcrafted shawls with unique seasonal designs are priceless. Experience the uniqueness of designer handcrafted seasonal shawls at www.yourselegantly.com and shop the difference.  YE carries a brand of shawls that are inspiring, creative and stylish elegance. The sale makes unique shawls very affordable and the service makes you want to come back for more.  They constantly have specials like a gift with purchase and free shipping.

What type of Wool Shawl should you buy as a Woman who wants Soft Warmth

Women looking for warm shawls and wraps tend to gravitate to soft fine wool. There are many types of wool shawls and it is good to have some information before you shop for wool accessories for fall winter and spring weather.

Types of wool shawls:

Sheep Wool: Sheep are largest producers of wool shawls they are fairly soft and and very warm. It is a natural fiber and has insulating properties of holding in warmth and is odor resistant. It also wicks moisture so it dries super fast making it a best selling winter cold weather clothing & accessory yarn. Very popular worldwide for shawls wraps and scarves especially in the USA, Canada, Australia and U.k.

Lamb’s Wool is the next popular choice especially for capes and scarves. Some cusumers find lamb’s wool to be slightly coarse but others like the thickness and warmth. Warm yet breathable this wool is popular in the U.K. especially for solid and tartan plaid scarves.

Cashmere Pashmina wool is very fine wool light yet very protective and has in last 2 decades become very popular. It’s demand has grown exponentially so much so that Pashmina has become a brandname for women who want soft stylish shawls and wraps. The demand has grown and women being bargain hunters want it at an affordable price so many shawls have Pashmina brand name but made from viscose acrylic and rayon. Those women that have shopped the true Pashmina from India and Nepal as well as Inner Mongolia know that Pashmina is the finest yarn akin to cashmere less than 14 microns in diameter and finer than your hair.  Ring Pashminas are so thin they can pass through a ring so the question is how does it keep women warm in winter? Cashmere Pashmina is underfur of the Capra Hircus goat and these goats are raised at such low temperatures and their underfur is super soft and super warm. They shed the fur and this is woven into gorgeous shawls and wraps. Cashmere pashmina come from the underfur of the same goat and are sometimes used interchangeably. For fall  and spring weather 2 ply or 2 layers on shawls and scarves are suggested for warmth but in winter a  4 ply cashmere shawl wrap scarf is ideal.

 Wool can be of other types like Angora, Alpaca, Merino, Loden, Melton and women love to use soft wool accessories that ensure warmth, retain their shape, are easy to dye, and these fine wool accessories are protective without being too heavy and cumbersome. Some women like wool and silk blend shawls and that is why the Silk Pashmina with its divine feel has become so popular for year round wear.

Acrylic has become the most popular synthetic fiber used for clothing and accessories today. It has so many advantages and in today’s market women love soft warm acrylic shawls capes and wraps as they are very protective, moisture resistant, stay odor free, have good insulation for warmth retention, dye beautifully in pastel and vibrant colors,  and retain their shape yet they are low cost hence great for the budget conscious consumer. Wool is a natural fiber acrylic is synthetic hence available easily in bulk supply at a lower price.

Acrylic scarves shawls and wraps have flooded the worldwide market for clothing and accessories as they can be easily mass produced in factories worldwide and consumers like this low cost option.

So there is a choice factor in play when choosing scarves and shawls for your seasonal pleasure. Any choice you make will be good if that accessory is soft and of decent quality, with an even weave or knit. The workman ship is important too if the accessory has embroidery or embellishment or is handcrafted for you so you have a unique original piece to cherish.

Most accessory sites online carry for retail /wholesale warm scarves and shawls for all budgets and special occasion and corporate gift needs so it is going to be easy to find scarves and wraps to suit your needs in terms of yarn, color, style, size especially if you shop a shawl site that has good customer service.

Some event planners like light wholesale soft viscose acrylic shawls due to the vibrant colors they come in and their very affordably cheap pricing under $5.00

Weddings where the wedding guests get a pashmina tied behind their chair in a bow of just draped over the back of the chair lend an enchanting touch of fairy tale beauty to the wedding. Bridal party feels comfortable in case there is a chill outdoors even for pictures.

YE Is Designing Artsy Shawls in Pink for a Good Cause

The designers at YE are designing artsy designs on pink shawls all shades of pink in pink ribbon and motif beauty to encourage customers to buy them and donate part of proceeds to cancer research.  Couple times a year there are specials on pink shawls they go on deeply discounted sale, they get unique inspirational words, designs to encourage hope & strength  in our beautiful survivors and everlasting love & remembrance for those who have passed from Cancer.

The shawls can be used as head scarves in soft chiffon silk, cotton, silk pashmina  with pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness. There may be some silver, gold and other color flowery designs embedded in the scarf so they match with many outfits and spread positivity and determination in our universal hope for a cure.

Our designers feel that wearing a pink shawl with a pink ribbon or black shawl or a silver evening wrap with a little pink ribbon looks amazing for any special event or occasion. They have made shawls and scarves with prayers and hopes for a cure. Positive energy is always a good thing. Gifting a pink ribbon scarf is a much appreciated gift as many families know someone who is fighting this disease and  sadly we seem to know someone who succumbed to it be it a friend, neighbor or loved one.

Being creative with scarves with a pink ribbon and some flowery paisley inspirational elegance around it is something we feel inspired to do to make the scarves a beautiful inspiration in our fight against cancer. The owner of www.yourselegantly.com has been a two time survivor and is hopeful that medical research will bring a cure for our future generations and this disease will be curbed and eliminated. May sound like a farfetched hope to some but a positive attitude, inner strength, hope and unending strong research from our wonderful scientific research enthusiasts do go hand in hand. We have conquered many diseases that took many lives in the past but are not as big a threat today due to huge strides in the research /medical field. Our hope is the same be done for cancer.

Breast cancer in women is a terrible disease and its treatment with chemo and radiation is grueling but strength be to all our women survivors that they get through this with fortitude and keep up the hope for a cure soon.

Beautiful Pashmina Shawls Origin and Present day Demand for Pashminas

Pashmina is one of the finest natural fibers that is shed by the Capra Hircus Himalayan mountain goat and is collected for hand weaving it into pashmina shawls & scarves in Nepal, Tibet, India and Inner Mongolia.  The goats that are found in these Himalayan mountains at approx.  14,000 ft. surrounded by great winds and freezing temperatures have this very delicate soft warm under fur.  The word "pashm" means wool in persian and the word pashmina denotes that soft warm light wool. The longer overcoat surrounding the goat surround the under fur keeping its soft delicate beauty intact.  The Indian Maharajas and Maharanis i.e. Kings and queens used to wear elaborately handcrafted Pashmina shawls as at that time it was treated as a prized possession.

Today with the huge demand pashmina factories for mass production have been set up and in addition to hand woven shawls the shawls are machine made but retain the fineness, color & beauty. Good thing is now they are more affordable and every woman wants a pashmina or a couple to enjoy. The cashmere pashmina wool in 2 ply (ply being a layer of yarn used to make the shawl) is great for spring. Silk pashmina shawls are ideal for summer and in fall a 3 ply Pashmina wool shawl provides protection from the cold and in the cold winters the 4 ply pure pashmina wool shawl is a must have.

When talking of Pashmina the word Kashmir Pashmina Shawls cannot be omitted. Kashmir is the place for sought after embroidered pashmina shawls and wraps. The jamawar style Pashmina with hand embroidery is the post popular. Inspite of political struggles Kashmir has kept its Pashmina industry alive and thriving. The local Kashmiri artisans and weavers have unsurpassed expertise in shawl making and handwork.

It is noteworthy that after a flowering plant appeared in the courts of a moghul emperor that became renowned and used to embellish these prized shawls in Kashmir and other places.  The sought after paisley motif was an emblem of royalty and beauty. The mango shaped Paisley design was founded here and the paisley pashminas were hand woven heirlooms. Thereafter paisley handlooms from Paisley Scotland took care of the bulk demand for these shawls. They became mass produced and more affordable.

Raffel, Papier Mache, Aari embroidery are some examples of intricate hand embroidery still used on pashminas. The handwork is very involved and par excellance. These designer shawls come in various price ranges for $10 to thousands of dollars depending on the extent of handwork, beading, sometimes hand painting work involved and the type of pashmina yarn and ply.
Buying Pashmina online is easy convenient and some sites have unique hand crafted Pashmina shawls that are custom made in a day like a site in CT USA. YoursElegantly.com has handcrafted shawls at least a hundred to choose from and you can customize shawl color, design color for all your evening shawl needs.

My favorite summer scarves and shawls

As a woman who wear shawls year round I have favorites for all seasons. My summer shawl  scarves that are must haves are the cool airy ones with a sheer  beauty. Also love silk scarves for summer that are light and beguiling.

For summer evening shawls and scarves I love the embellished shawls in white silver gold black lavender lilac blue pink pastel beauty. Iridescent scarves in chiffon elegance are always a delight over a short summer dress or an elegant evening  gown.

Fashion scarves in solid chiffon add that je ne sais quoi to any casual or formal dress – when looking for a simple elegant look. Some women want shawls that make a big statement and others want an understated elegance. Choose an evening summer wrap to suit your needs, moods and the occasion. Make sure you wear a shawl that makes the real you shine out as then only will there be an air of confidence and beauty that represents the real you.

Keep a bunch of casual fashion scarves in your closet or car to quickly change a day look into a more formal dressy evening look, add some bling and lipstick and you are ready for an evening out. Handcrafted scarves and wraps are a cut above they enrich your outfit and can be made in colors of your choice.
