This scarf is set to become one of my favorites- it is soft, warm, and a pleasure to wear. I'm delighted with my purchase. The only reason I've been rated as 4 stars, instead of 5, is because the color wasn't as pictured. The scarf is a beautiful true purple(not Crayola purple, but almost gem tone), which worked better for me. The dusky purple shown just isn't so~ and not just a difference in monitor settings.
