Would Buy Again But Beware
on October 24, 2013
This scarf is great, don't get me wrong. It's very plush, soft, and very comfortable to keep around your neck. I have short hair that doesn't cover my neck so my hair doesn't particularly get tangled or caught in the back, just some background info. The knit is great and I believe that the color matches well with the picture. While being warm and great for fall or winter, it's also I believe breathable in that it somewhat ventilates through the gaps of the knit.
The only part that is bringing my review to three stars is two things. One, the smell. The smell is god awful, I couldn't stand it being on my neck. It was a very chemically smell. I highly suggest you hand wash this(air dry too because it's going to shrink in the dryer). I used woolite and if you wish while you're rinsing it give a spray of perfume in the water and keep it in there for a minute. With that way I completely removed the smell. This scarf also holds a lot of water, much like a sponge, so be aware.
The next part is that it broke. I don't know if it was how I handled it during washing, or it's just cheap sewing, but I believe there was no lock knot in it to keep it from separating apart. It was fairly easy to get the two ends together however I'd rather not. As long as you have someone or yourself who sows in the family you'll be fine.
Shipping arrived early, so that was a plus.
