White Twenty-Six Pleat Eastern Covering
White mesh cotton fabric
How To Wear the Covering: Part your hair down the middle. Roll the sides of your hair and clip in place. Very neatly place your hair in a bun in the middle of the back of your head. For full hair, your bun should be pinned flat close to your head. For all other types it works best to place your hair in a ponytail. While twisting your hair in one direction, counter clock wise, start to form a bun. Secure with Amish Steel Pins.
Place the covering on by lowering it from crown first, tucking in any side strains of hair, and then over and the bun. The back covering should touch the back nap of your neck.
How to Measure for your fit: If you were wearing a bandana, take a fabric measuring tape and measure the circumference of the outside edge, closest to your forehead, all the way around. This is the circumference of the prayer covering.
Description and Size of the Covering:White mesh eastern covering with 7 pleats on each side. Ribbon is attached. Covering is measured in total circumference around the outside brim. 24 inches around. Average size for woman is 23 inches. If you are small framed and have thin hair, 22 inches may work best. For full thick hair, 24 inches may work best.
How to Secure the Covering:
Fasten covering with white clips on each side above the ears or with a straight pin on the top of your head by weaving it over the fabric and under the hair.
How to Care for Your Covering: When the covering is mailed it may lose some of its shape. With a hot iron, no steam, iron the inside of the covering around the brim. Move the iron in a vertical position (in a quick fashion) It is not necessary to iron the back and do not try to iron from the outside of the covering. The material is delicate. If the covering is flattened by accident, you can still ironing it back into shape by the description above.
Return Policy No returns on coverings for health reasons. Please ensure you take accurate measuring of your size before buying. If the circumference is too small the covering will not fit and be to snug, squeezing the covering towards the back of your head. A covering should be comfortable.
