The small scapulars consist essentially of two quadrilateral segments of woolen cloth (about two and three-quarter inches long by two inches wide), connected with each other by two strings or bands in such a manner that, when the bands rest on the shoulders, the front segment rests before the breast, while the other hangs down an equal distance at the back. The two segments of cloth need not necessarily be equally large, various scapulars having the segment before the breast of the above dimensions while the segment at the back is much smaller. The material of these two essential parts of the scapular must be of woven wool; the strings or bands may be of any material, and of any one color. The color of the segments of woolen cloth depends on the color of the Carmelite habit, ...

The Catholic Encyclopedia

According to the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences wool is necessary and exclusively to be used in the making of scapulars.  Cotton, felt, of wool woven into the fashion of lace will not suffice.  A picture or decoration must never deprive the color of the Scapular of its predominance.

The Scapular Devotion -- E. P. Magennis, Order of Carmelites

Pope Saint Pius X: "... I believe in the Scapular Vision! ... I desire most vehemently that the cloth Scapulars be worn, as heretofore."

Benedict XV declared on July 8, 1916: "In order that one may see that it is Our desire that the Brown Scapular be worn, We concede to it a grace that the Scapular Medal shall not enjoy." And the Pontiff proceeded to grant an indulgence of five hundred days for each time the Scapular is kissed.

Mary in Her Scapular Promise -- John Mathias Haffert

From Mary in Her Scapular Promise, the renowned Jesuit Moralist, Father Vermeersch says: "I would prefer that, in order to honor the principal Scapular which is that of Carmel, the Brown Scapular be worn in the accustomed form and the medal only as a substitute for the other scapulars ..."

The brown scapular must be given separately, not with other scapulars.

Your Brown Scapular -- Most Rev. E. K. Lynch, Order of Carmelites

Code of Canon Law: 992 An indulgence is the remission in the sight of God of the temporal punishment due for sins, the guilt of which has already been forgiven. A member of Christ's faithful who is properly disposed and who fulfils certain specific conditions, may gain an indulgence by the help of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, authoritatively dispenses and applies the treasury of the merits of Christ and the Saints.

Code of Canon Law: 1167 ß2 The rites and the formulae approved by ecclesiastical authority are to be accurately observed when celebrating or administering sacramentals.
