A.K.A. Keffiyeh. I've got a whole collection of these from various countries (e.g., Palestine, Somalia, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen) in various sizes, weights, and colours. Incredibly versatile. Used for warmth, protection from sun, sand storms, snow blizzards, great for wrapping, bundling, emergency sling, tourniquet, splint and other first aid. Great for light weight sleeping alternative for pillow, blanket, towel or bed spread. Occasionally fashionable esp in hipster crowds.
My buddy got this for me in Afghanistan.
