One of myths about the Orenburg scarfs is that they are made of 100 % down. Neither the best needlewomen, nor factory masters do that way. Silk, viscose and cotton threads give a basis, and down gives warmth and elegance. One shawl needs about 100 gram of the goat down and one bobbin of a silk thread. For a scarf it takes 300 gram of down and big bobbin a cotton thread.
