The wait was worth it for this scarf. It is soft, squishy, and versatile. It can be used as a summer scarf and is warm enough to use in colder weather. On my screen, the color looked like coral, salmon, or even watermelon. But when it arrived, it had a little more of a purple, plum hue. Since I wasn't trying to match it with anything in particular, I did not mind the difference in color. In fact, I like it better than the color I thought it was! It is a beautiful scarf. I want the light blue one too now!
