I ordered one of these for myself, in white, and another, red, for my son and his wife. I care a lot about design, and love the visual texture of the basketweave and the gentle tassel finishing. It is not as soft as I'd expect cashmere to be, but one review said it would soften up with use. Still very comfortable, and I like the colors. Came quickly and was beautifully packaged, happy all around.
