January 2, 2015 - I bought the brown, green, multicolor and purple scarfs for gifts and one for myself. Love the colors! I wanted to keep them all, but didn't! My only complaint is the weave is VERY loose so it is easily picked. At first I was disappointed how light weight the scarf is but after wearing it I was fine with it. It kept me warm in the cold wind.
November 23, 2014 - Good value for the price. Might be a little itchy for some people. I like it to keep the chill off my neck with my lightweight down jacket and it's not so warm that I can't leave it on inside, ususally.
November 23, 2014 - I bought the multicolor scarf; the colors are beautiful, and the scarf is a good length. Suitable for wear with a coat outdoors or as an accessory with a t-shirt or sweater.
March 27, 2014 - I love this scarf. The color is perfect, and workmanship is great.
November 22, 2013 - I love this scarf! I got the multicolor and it is beautiful. It is delicate but warm. I am wearing it today.
