I bought this scarf to take on a trip to southern Spain (temps upper 50s to mid 60s) over Christmas. It was the perfect weight worn with a raincoat to ward off a chilly breeze without being too hot for that temp range. However, the first time I wore it, it bled red all over my white turtleneck sweater. And it was bone dry! I'm still trying to get that sweater clean. At home, I put the scarf in the utility sink with vinegar and warm water, and no matter how long I rinsed and squeezed, it still bled like crazy. My hands were bright red. I ended up throwing it out. I was not going to jeopardize my washing machine by running it through there. It took Comet to get the dye off of the sides of the utility sink. This was a beautiful scarf but a waste of money.

I am so pleased with the scarf that I ordered. It is made of a beautiful silk material and is really impressive. Unlike many scarves in this price range that are skimpy, it is quite the opposite -- this is a very substantial scarf which makes it extremely versatile. I can wear it over an outfit, under my coat or it is long enough to wear over a coat. I have worn it numerous times and it holds up beautifully and I always get compliments on it. The colors are rich looking and my hardest decision was to choose which of the many colors I wanted.
I was looking for a scarf/stole longer/wider than most of what I have. This one is a great size and the brown color goes with a lot of my clothing. It is pretty and it feels soft. The silk quality is somewhat suspect and the regular price a bit pricey but overall I love it. .
