Vintage sheer black shawl / mantilla, fine knitted lace w/ long fringe

1950s vintage fine light knitted lace shawl or mantilla, slightly stretchy, easy to wear knotted around your shoulders or your head. We think this is a synthetic fiber, probably nylon?

The square (not including the long fringe at the border) measures 26" square. This does have a few holes and snags to the lace which we have not attempted to repair.... it would be easy to hide them with careful wrapping and a pin, or a flower or two!
