A wild rag is a western scarf traditionally worn around the neck and secured with either a buckaroo knot or scarf slide. Wild rags are traditionally made of silk, cotton or other natural fibers but recently have been made in satin and polyester as well so we can offer hundreds of color, pattern, fabric, and sizes combinations to meet the demands of todays western fashion. Although people today wear wild rags for fashion, we still serve the working cowboys who rely on wild rags for their intended purpose when men and women alike wore wild rags to to keep warm and keep dust out of their nose and mouth when they were working outside on the ranch or country.
Whipin creates our own original designs and prints them on either 100% silk or a beautiful silky satin that is 100% polyester, we call it fools gold because it's frequently mistaken for silk. Our silk wild rags are all a 12mm silk which is a light yet extremely durable weight. We do this so that your Whipin can withstand wear and tear, weather and washing unlike the 8mm silk which is used by other companies. We created the silky satin line with our western fashionistas in mind, we offer 100% polyester satin again printed with our own original designs and art that looks so real no on will believe it's satin. It has the softness and subtle sheen that you expect from fine silk scar and they come in a wide selection of colors and patters to fit everyones style and budget. For more information on fabric content see the each items product page.
You'll love how we design all of our wild rag scarves with women in mind and after extensive research we have found that most women prefer a 36x36 inch wild rag, the 36inch offers women enough variation to tie buckaroo knots as well as head scarves without being overwhelmed by all the extra fabric or losing the ability to wear certain styles because of lack of size that happens with the very large 42 x42 inch and the smaller 34x34 inch and 35x35 inch wild rags. Most men on the other hand prefer a 42x42 inch wild rag especially if they are bigger guys or buckaroos. We offer custom wild rags in any size you choose. If you're interested. See our Custom Order Items. Our scarves range from 18x18 inches to 28x28 inches it will state on each product description, classic red bandanas are usually 22x22 inches for a better idea of size. Twillys are 3x72 inches and offer great versatility in style and function. They are the ultimate accessory for warmer months or if you like to wear scarves in your braids or as headbands!
