Description of Cotton Shawl from Tarim, Hadhramaut
Anas ibn Malik narrates that from all the different types of clothing, the Prophet ﷺ liked a Yemeni shawl the most. It was of several colours.
Anas ibn Malik narrates that The Messenger of Allah ﷺ out of all shawls preferred to cover themselves with a 'Habirah' shawl (a cotton edged Yemeni shawl).

Maintaining Your Stole
To maintain the shawl, hand-wash it separately in cool water with a small amount of delicate non-biological detergent. Do not tumble dry. Avoid fabric softeners, as this can dull the finish. Use medium heat when ironing.
