We decided to be more enviromental friendly with the scraps from our original KAXI scarves, instead of sending them to the land fill. Each scrunchie has a detachable 'mini KAXI scarf' that can be used around braids, pony tails, etc. It measures approximently 23 inches long and 1.5 inches thick. This material is a light polyester blend that is stretchy. It feels like a silk-spandex blend.
