2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for!, December 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dahlia Women's 100% Merino Wool Pashmina Scarf - Flower or Butterfly (Apparel)
Pashmina refers to a type of fine cashmere wool and the textiles made from it. The wool comes from changthangi or pashmina goat, which is a special breed of goat indigenous to high altitudes of the Himalayas in Nepal, Pakistan and northern India. Pashmina shawls are hand spun, woven and embroidered in Kashmir, and made from fine cashmere fiber

THIS scarf... although the title description specifically SAYS it is "100% Pashmina/Cashmere" is SO NOT what actually arrived! What arrived is a scarf MADE IN CHINA...100% wool... ( The textile was marked with these indicators)... and then the manufacture TAGED the scarf PASHMINA/CASHMERE! HA HA HA HA.. SERIOUSLY!!!

I could go on and on to telling you how the scarf I received ~ in my opinion~ is just no where near as nice in appearance. I am so embarrassed that I got taken! I usually... NO ..I ALWAYS make better decisions than this! BOO!!!

Maybe if I get the nerve up... or have a few glasses of holiday wine... I'll post a video in the next few days! STAY TUNED!

Pashmina at Dahlia refer to its original meaning of fine wool similar to cashmere while the word PASHMINA has been used so liberally that many scarves made from other fibers are sold as Pashmina, creating confusion in the market. We label it 100% wool because Pashmina is not a recognized fiber term by the Wool Act or FTC regulations.

....as nice as the description....
My complaint was legitimate in that the manufacture is/was trying to pass off a wool textile as a CASHMERE textile as indicated in the title descriptive "100% Pashmina /Cashmere" ( I believe they have since changed it!)
My post was in keeping with FACTS....
Your post on the other hand ? Not so much.....BUT, I guess it's easy to to bully from the anonymity of your computer?

DeMarino if you know anything about pashmina and sounds like you do, you very well know that a real pashmina scarf will cost 100s of dollars and are extremely rare to come by. My grandmother used to have a blanket sized shawl made of pashmina wool that could pass through a size 6 ring and was terribly warm - only to be used in winter. That's real pashmina, right now any soft silky material is being called pashmina be it rayon or wool - probably to denote the soft, silky woven texture of pashmina wool.
