5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy For The Knowing, April 11, 2012
This review is from: SCARF_TRADINGINC® Large Soft 100% Twill Pashmina Scarf Shawl Wrap (Apparel)
I have several pashmina and pashmina/silk blend scarves and wraps; two are from here, and I am about to buy more. Personally, I really like this product, and have been happy with those I've received. After reading some of the critical reviews tho, I would like to make a couple comments for those checking out this product.

First: Read ALL the product information. Several complaints about whether 100% pashmina was received could have been avoided by reading the information that not all the colors are 100% pashmina, and then LISTS the colors that are blends [with silk].

Second: The person who "pulled on one thread, really tugged hard" and found it wouldn't break, should know that silk is what gives the yarn fiber it's great strength, and is a sign of quality.

Third: If you're suspicious a fabric may be synthetic, do this simple test: cut off one piece of the fringe. Burn it with a match, doesn't have to be all the way. If you get ash, its a natural fiber. If it smells bad, it's usually wool. If it melts, or turns into little globs that harden like beads, it is synthetic.

Lots of strange smells can accumulate from various manufacturing practices,i.e., dyes, where it was stored, plastic packaging material, the container it was shipped in, etc. Air it out for a few days or a week, or just store it with your favorite potpourrie. Don't put perfume on it, but you can store it with the bottles.
Just don't be so instantly freaked out.

Where did you find the product information that lists which colors are 100% and which are not? I'm not seeing it on the product information section listed above.

I just entered Pashmina Scarf in the Clothing and Accessories category and it just popped up.
The thing is that the stock available and colors vary frequently depending on supply and demand. For instance, this is the end of winter: a lot of their most popular colors may have sold out. There should be a list of colors by the picture to click on, but only the ones in dark print are available for sale. I just kept checking and tried to buy in the early fall, when the color selection is best (but the prices tend to be on the high side). Also, some colors cost more than others, because of the price of the dye, etc.SCARF_TRADINGINC® Large Soft 100% Twill Pashmina Scarf Shawl Wrap

It says clearly in the product description that this is synthetic.
