Took a month for this to arrive. It arrived last night and I opened the package only to find it to be very cheap synthetic yarn. Scratchy. Also, it arrived snagged and has a horrid smell, like some sort of preservative. Smell is a bit like kerosene. The only reason this gets a 1 star is because I can't give it zero stars
Very cute and great idea... not exactly like the photo.
I'm a 6 foot tall woman so I expect things to be on the smaller side. If I wrap this once around the sleeves become too short and not at all "blousy" as shown in the photo. Still, it's cute and I will wear it. I will try getting it wet and see if I can stretch it out... keeping fingers crossed.
Knit, not crochet'd. Depending on the company, the sizes differ for these identical looking scarves. If you buy one from Foxnovo they will only fit a petite XS or petite small person (narrow shoulders). However this one, at least the one I received, is too large for me (i'm XS): i could wear it super draped like in the pic, but then it falls off. A "normal" sized person, like perhaps a regular medium, would fit this scarf nicely. Yes; the whole thing with the wrap around and sleeves works beautifully. I bet this trend will hit the US next year.
Completely in love with this. I look NOTHING like the pencil-thin model wearing this scarf and mine fits with enough room to wrap warming around my neck and have plenty of room for my long arms. I usually have to wear a size larger sweaters because I have long arms and the sleeves are never long enough...even in my skinny days. Now that those skinny days are a thing of the past, this scarf still has enough length to comfortably cover my arms without me feeling as if I'm being strangled. I love this and would definitely recommend. It's definitely quirky enough to get comments and you'd probably want to order one or two to keep on hand as gifts. It's soft acrylic, so it's not super warm (like a wool scarf would be), so it's perfect over other sweaters or tops. I'm very pleased with my purchase and, if you're not shaped like the model pictured (like me), don't be afraid to order this one; it's nice and long and definitely fits well. Enjoy!
CONS: this ships directly from China. When it arrived, it was in a sealed package and smelled like mold. Who knows where the vendor stores these. I washed it 3 times to remove the smell. It now has pills and is definitely not wool. PROS: interesting cut. I'm 5'4" 148 lb and a weight lifter, so my arms are a tad on the large side. This fit great. However, if you are a bit heavier, the arms may be tight.
I will not order from this vendor again. The smell kinda freaked me out.
Super cute!! Love the versatility :). For your reference, this fit me almost as pictured and I am 5'3 and 130lbs. The model is much more petite than me so there isn't as much slack but it still wears beautifully and I am very pleased.
I purchased 2 of the scarves with sleeves, one in black and the other in off white. It took about a week for delivery but I am very pleased with the item. For the price I did not expect top of the line, but its well worth the price paid. It's a really unique shawl. I typically wear a medium size, anywhere from 8-10 so I was able to wrap the scarf around my neck to achieve the look the model in the picture exhibited. I will definitely purchas another color.
