Shemaghs are all the rage right now, and for good reason. They've been around for centuries and provided what I'd estimate to be billions of people with protection from the sun and sand in a practical manner. Their practicality isn't limited to just desert affairs, they can serve as a neck warmer, hand towel, napkin, fashion accessory and more.
This Tan & Brown Tactical Shemagh Head Wrap measures 42" x 42" and is made from 100% cotton.
Smelled of kerosene coming out of the package, and still smelled of kerosene after first wash/dry cycle. Finally smelled neutral after 2nd wash/dry cycle. Washed by hand with cold water and laundry detergent, bled a lot of dye both times. Material is a lightweight weave, but it has worked well as a scarf and head covering. Do *not* rely on this as a COVID face covering! Not a huge fan of the tassels, will get one without tassels next time. Size is OK, but I wouldn't mind one a few inches larger. Not bad value, but the smell out of the package made it unwearable until washed... whew!
