Kashmiri wool shawls are made from finely spun merino wool. Designs might be limited to the border, or flow across the entire article. Wool shawls provide great warmth and style, and are in numerous colors. The design can be either embroidered through needlework or crewel work, or woven in the shawl. The delicacy of workmanship and the amount of embroidery determines the value of the shawl.

Double sided: Kashmiri needlework can be done so skillfully that the motif appears on both sides of the shawl, each side having a different color scheme. This is extremely difficult, as the artisan has to embroider both side at the same place with different colors without showing the open threads on either side. A true testament to the workmanship of the artisan!
