Question Best material to use...?

I was wondering what the best type of material to use for a shawl? And if you know where I could get it from? Thanks!!

My personal favorite shawl is made from dark red garberdine wool; it was my grandmother's shawl. Although this kind is heavy and hot, it looks the best; and more traditional. My second choice of fabric would be a good polyester blend, mainly for ease of cleaning. My wool-blend shawl has to be dry-cleaned or very carefully hand washed in cold with woolite and air dried. Joann's fabric is a good place to shop for these fabrics. Anyhow with any shawl, it should be placed inside a closed pillow case for washing so the fringe will stay intact.

Question

I wanted to know..the measurements for a traditional shawl...and also how long the fridge should be. I've seen many different lengths but wouldn't it depend on what size the shawl is?? *HELP PLEASE* :)

Traditional shawl

Your shawl should be fitted to you. It is not like a fancy dancer's shawl. It should go out past the length of your finger tips when your wearing it. It should be cut into a square. Mine is 70"x70", for example and the fringe is 14" inches long and covers all four sides. I wouldn't put really long fringe on a traditional shawl; it is usually carried over your arm, and you don't want it dragging the floor or ground.

I would have to say satin material or the shiney material, you would get it at the fabric stores or wal-mart cause the satin looks better and it will bring out the beadwork that you have.
