Stoles & Scarves
The stole is a liturgical vestment of various Christian denominations. It consists of a band of colored fabric, formerly usually of silk, about seven and a half to nine feet long and three to four inches wide, whose ends may be straight or may broaden out as in a Roman style. The center of the stole is worn around the back of the neck and the two ends hang down parallel to each other in front, either attached to each other or hanging loose. Roman style stoles often cross at the front and are secured in place with the cincture around the waist - the stole passing through the cincture loops. The stole is often decorated in some way, usually with a cross or some other significant religious design. It is often decorated with contrasting galoons (ornamental trim) and fringe is sometimes applied to the ends of the stole.
A piece of white fabric or lace may be stitched onto the back of the collar as a sweat guard which can be replaced more cheaply than buying a new stole. (Stole guard)
