Gives $5 To Nepal
October 3, 2014 - I just bought the ocean one. Although it looks pretty the weaves are very loose. I've just had it a week, and one thread is already dangling away towards freedom. Nonetheless, I gave it three stars anyways because I didn't expect it to be warm, but it is!
July 20, 2014 - Very pretty. It is easy to snag and ravel, but I enjoy wearing it.
March 26, 2014 - I purchased the Ocean color and I love the colors and the way it lays. The gauzy pattern is awesome!
December 23, 2013 - Just love the color of this scarf and the open-weave look!
December 20, 2013 - Pure cotton is my preference. The colors are blended from bold to gentle. It looks delicate, but handles as a sturdy product. Bought for South Florida in the autumn, its perfect for chilly indoor air conditioning. Just lovely. Thanks to Novica.
