best scarf i have EVER owned
on August 26, 2012
Now... if you unfold this ALL THE WAY... which leaves you with a *huge*, wide scarf (big enough to wrap over my head and around my neck and down into my jacket, which i will sometimes do and pair with a hat or my motorcycle helmet) - it IS a tad thin, which leaves it prone to pulls and snags. However the times I've done this are few. So cheap--maybe, ten or twenty years ago, it would have been thicker and perhaps then it would not snag quite as much. But I got TONS of compliments on it, and there is nothing to the weave or design to suggest cheapness. and truly, i gave this "fashion" scarf a workout. If I'd just been wearing it out to the office or an evening out, I doubt I'd have had any problems at all. As it is, they are still basically injuries to the fabric that only i would notice. It's still got plenty of wear for this winter and next.
With all that said, this is without question the prettiest, softest, WARMEST, most versatile (due to it's size) and most fashion-forward scarf I've ever owned. Warm like wool, but not scratchy at all, smooth and soft as a baby's bum.
It's long enough to do almost ANYTHING with - usually i wear it doubled over width-wise (sometimes even twice) and then i fold it in half length-wise, wrap it around my neck, and pull the tasselled ends through the loop. This method gives it plenty of pile around my neck and the scarf is long enough to have plenty of end to tuck securely into my coat. It also leaves the scarf the least vulnerable to accidents.
However as I said first, I have also been able to wear this scarf like a classic bubushka with room to spare, and been grateful to have it. In many ways it's ability to spread out very thin is an assett. it is still warm but you can fit it under a hat easily, or just keep your hair from getting blown out of shape, with a light touch.
If you are sick of having too-short scarves (i've bought SO many) and want one that is gorgeous, warm, versatile, soft, and pretty too, get this scarf.
I basically beat mine to death last winter since I wore it every day,for every purpose indoor and out, but I think it will make at least one more season, and I'm buying another one in brown for a treat. Aside from being pretty it's just the best performing
