Rated 5 out of 5Â by Arlette Whisper soft flock of birds
I had been eyeing this scarf online, but was wary of risking shipping charges on something I might not like. Lucky for me I found it in a store and love it.
It is a very soft and lightweight blend of 50% cashmere, 50% wool that is woven in India. Instructions are to handwash cold and dry flat. So happy to find a scarf that isn't dry clean only.
The colors are ever so slightly more subdued than the online catalog photo. They are a flattering neutral light greige and soft dark gray with a magenta contrast. I took a photo just before dusk in natural daylight to give an idea.
I'll be looking for more scarves by this designer and just wish I had seen this earlier so I could buy the other color version too. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves natural fibers.
