This Stole is made of Coronation Tapestry Fabric and lined with heavy satin fabric from inside. The stole measures 54 inches in length and has a stay string in the middle and rayon fringes at the bottom.
Stole: In the Roman Catholic Church the stole is the vestment that marks recipients of Holy Orders. It is conferred at the ordination of a deacon, by which one becomes a member of the clergy after the suppression of the tonsure and minor orders after the Second Vatican Council.
A bishop or other priest wears the stole around his neck with the ends hanging down in front, while the deacon places it over his left shoulder and ties it cross-wise at his right side, similar to a sash.. (source: www. wikipedia.org)
