    So I know nothing about textiles or fabrics,but I lived thru the 60's so I think this 'Paisley' (maybe ?). Anyway it was $5 a the Thrift & I liked it.Feels kind of silky or silk blend.It's 26" wide by 78" long & changes hue (or brightness) depending on how the light.Any idea what exactly it is & where it was made-India,China,U.S. ?
    Thanks much for the help. Scarf1.jpg Scarf2.jpg Scarf3.jpg Scarf4.jpg Scarf6.jpg

    First guess is an acrylic/blend “pashmina” scarf. They are widely available quite cheaply.
    They are very pretty!

    A burnoose/bournous is a Berber cloak with a hood. It never has intricate designs.

    Faux pashmina. An important distinction.

    Agree with Debora!
    I had put "pashmina" in quotes to indicate faux but I should have been more clear... it is pashmina-style but certainly not genuine pashmina.

    I'm also finding listings for counterfeit Pashmina scarfs online.

    "Imitation" more accurate. Thrift shops full of these.
