I had been looking to add some faux fur to my wardrobe, but I couldn't find anything that matched my style and wasn't too over the top. I absolutely fell in love with this item as soon as I saw it in store. I didn't see the cream one, but the "red" (which is really a bright orange) works perfectly for me. Like another said, the elastic in it keeps it from sticking down, and it almost resembles a wreath around your neck. But the shear quirkiness to it makes it work rather well with a surprising number of pieces. Now to make sure the weather complies!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby RachDC too fun!
Just picked one up at my local anthro (FYI - I've seen these at several so it's not just avail online) and love it! So cozy and fun.
I tried on the ivory/grey and the coral/brown one and found that the ivory one was softer so I went w/that one. The fur has elastic or something in it that helps it to kind of bunch, so it doesn't readily sit flat, but I thought it looked cute that way - but wanted to mention it b/c I can't figure out how they got it to lay so flat on the model in the photo w/the dress and coral one.

Well, this really is a unique piece. My store only had the cream and the red available (I would have liked to try the pine-green, as seen in the catalogue), but I grabbed them both to try on with the rest of my arm-load of clothes. And they are fun (if tricky) to top all types of outfits: when wrapped around a grey sweater, the cream/grey muff looked like it was part of the sweater; when added to a dress, the red/brown muff took on the up-dated role of a shawl; on top of a coat, I was ready to go to the opera. They can be bow-tied or left long like broad ribbons.
As other reviewers have noted, the faux-fur is bunched a bit with inner elastic-- and there really is only one way to smoothly form it around your neck (flipped over makes it look like it might scamper off into the woods).
Everything is 100% acrylic, which is impressive given the complex componants of this stylish piece. In the end, I chose the cream-colored scarf/muff, because the red is almost orange, and my wardrobe is more rose-toned. Thank you, Anthro, for continuing to bring us classy, innovative ideas such as this one!
