I ordered several of these scarves because I fell in love with the colors on the web site. When I received them, they were beautiful but simply too thick for my taste. The thickness certainly speaks to their quality, but I wanted something thin and flowing. These are lightweight, but not "flowing enough" when I put them around my neck and let them hang. The colors and patters very pretty, but I'll be sending them all back because it's not that soft, flowing "look" or feel that I was hoping for.Read More
The scarf is good quality, pretty. The colors were better on the website than on the scarf itself, however.Read More
I have purchased this scarf in all colors except the orange, (not my color). The monitor does not show the depth or richness of the colors. All the scarves were so much more beautiful in person. Each scarf is exceptional. Note the measurements, as they do run to the narrow side. I find it difficult to find 100% cotton, quality loomed scarves at any price. These are a steal. Thanks Overstock for another super purchase.Read More
