Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The length of each "arm" of the stole is measured from the back of neck, over the shoulder and down to the end. Please check the measurement length listed on each product.

If you'd like the stole shortened, I can hem it before sending. Please provide preferred length. If you need a longer stole, please contact me and I'll let you know if I can still get the fabric to make a longer version.

Dedication or personalization

I can add custom personalization or a dedication such as a name, scripture verse and date to the inside pocket. Cost of personalizing depends on request, but typically runs $18-$25 USD.
Open the item "Personalize Your Stole" (it is an orange square) to find ideas for your personalization.
First put the stole in your cart, then add the orange square into the cart as a separate item for purchase.
Send me a message to describe what you want in the personalization. I look forward to working with you to make your stole unique.

Care instructions

Spot clean or wash by hand when necessary. Lay flat to dry. Do not machine wash as the arms of the stole will twist during agitation and may be difficult to get back to original fit.

Occupational hazard: wine stains are difficult to remove. Some ideas: pour salt on the wet stain and attempt to draw out the wine. Use hydrogen peroxide and blot the stain. Use very hot water.

If you get a crease or wrinkle and need to press your stole, work from the edge toward the inside, being careful to keep the lining under the top.

If your stole is made from a textured fabric, do not press on the textured side. Place a plush towel on the ironing surface, then place the stole, textured side down on the towel. Press only on the back side.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each stole is packaged and sent in an elegant black gift box. Contact me if you'd like a special message included.

Extra wrapping is available for $4.00--check the box for "gift wrapping" and the package will get special attention. I'll also include a card with your message if you send me what you'd like written.

Do you make custom stoles?


I am happy to work with you to create a new design to fit your style and needs. Contact me with your ideas. Use the "custom order" button on my shop or send me a message.

Note that our creativity may be limited to the availability of fabrics and to the time frame allotted.

A Note about Batik Fabric

Many of my stoles feature the beauty and originality of hand-dyed and hand-painted batik fabric. The detailed and specialized process of creating batik fabric results in vibrant colors and unique patterns. Due to the hand-crafted nature, there can be slight variations and imperfections that are part of the artistic process of this fabric.

Deacon Stoles

Deacon stoles fit best when they are made to your specific measurements. You provide two measurements: a crossbody measurement from left shoulder to right hip and a "drop" measurement from right hip to your preferred length toward the floor.
