The minute I pulled this out of it's package I fell in love with it's soft feel. When I wrapped it around me, I felt like I'd been draped in the warmth of cashmere (although it is NOT cashmere...it's 100% acrylic and HAND WASHABLE). It comes in three colors now. The length of the ruffle made me feel wrapped from top to bottom. It truly is a beautiful wrap . I ordered the Crimson and really love the deep color. This is a wrap that can be worn with a skirt, jeans - formal, casual. I'm probably going to order the Bl;ack for a more dressy look. And, by the way, this product is worth every penny I spent!
So pretty. I'm not a ruffles person, really, but these add to the piece and do not in the least look fussy. This is such a classic piece with a lovely, warm knit that I note does not cling to the backside. I bought the beige/brown and it looks fantastic with a cream turtleneck or shirt. Any kind of pants. Most occasions. If you are tall, don't worry; It has a nice length. It says handwash and I would not put this in the dryer. GREAT Christmas gift if you can let it go. I have to keep mine! Sorry Mom. :-)
I've not been a fan of shawls and wraps in the past because they always seemed 'skimply' or like wearing a bed blanket. This one is perfect! Very soft and cozy, but light so that you don't feel 'buried' in it. Would love to have the other colors.
The wrap is pretty and heavy, but back coverage is weird. The wrap slopes up in back instead of on sides. It was shipped in a plastic bag and I have had it hanging to air for over one week, but it still has a very strong odor kind of like a hair perm. It needs to be hand washed and dried and hopefully the smell will come out.
I love this wrap! The color is a really rich, blue-red which is more flattering than with an orang-ey tone, and the ruffles are not TO girly, not usually my style. Every time I wear it I get good comments, and it is fantastic for using on your lap in travel or at a concert where it's just chilly in the room. Great buy and worth twice the money. Our winters here are mild; I'm thinking I'll wear it almost all winter long.
The wrap is so soft. I loved wearing it this past winter. The length goes to my knees. It is a very pretty, cozy wrap to wear during a mild day or evening. I shouldn't have waited so long to purchase the wrap. I ended up with the brown or tan, I can't remember the exact color of the description, it's mocha, definitely mocha.
