2.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure what I got, January 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dabung Women's Lauren Solid Color Stunning Pashmina Wrap Shawl (Apparel)
The shawl was delivered promptly. The color is lighter than I expected (I ordered sky blue). It's still a pretty color, but the fabric is not what I expected. I ordered an ivory scarf several weeks ago that is 100% Pashmina, and the texture is quite different from the texture of this shawl. The ivory scarf came from India and it is clearly made of wool --it feels scratchy on my neck. This shawl feels suspiciously like rayon to me. The plastic bag containing the shawl says "Made in China", which adds to my suspicions. I feel I just spent fifteen dollars on a cheap imitation, when I was led to believe I was buying the real thing.

Dear Phaedra,
Could you resume on the pashmina scarf? Is it a fake, a cheap imitation indeed?
I've ordered several items of these in diverse colours but I've got nervous about their quality. I had relied on the product detail running "blend of pashmina and silk" as I do not wear artificial fabrics... In case the items description is a fraud, I'm afraid I'm loosing the pretty costy delivery expenses.
Thank you for your response.
Kind regards,
Yulia

You could take 1 or 2 threads of the dangling trim and run a burn test. There's a list of what to look for on the web. Basically, acrylic will ignite and burn, maybe bubble slightly, and have a black sort of ball-like residue. When you take the flame away from wool and silk, they should stop burning. In general, most synthetics seem to shrink away from the flame initially. But look up the burn tests to be sure that I have this correct.

Hi Yulia - I'm not an expert, but people do claim that because rayon is made from wood pulp, it is not technically a synthetic fiber. At any rate, I think you could find nicer shawls without searching too extensively.
