"Absolutely beautiful..."

This colorful shawl is not overpowering with color, but can coordinate with most things I own. It's light as a feather...yet is warming. I'm so very glad to own it. Thank you

This is my go to gift! It?s colors are gorgeous. It?s lightweight and can be worn as a scarf or a shawl. The colors enhance every complexion and it can be dresses up or with a tee shirt for casual wear. I?ve given several as gifts and the recipients wear them all the time!

"This is one of my favourite schawls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It is thinner than i thought it would be but still not to thin to be fragile (for people like me anyway, who tend to get fragile materials damaged no matter how much we try to look after them) and its nice on a cool summer evening or over a jumper in winter (not that i have had any such weather to try it yet). I love brown but wanted some colour as well, that was not to bright so while brown looks good with colours like white it matches much more . And the material feel beautiful and soft.

Best Uses

  • Over a dress to add colour or cover your shoulders n the evening breeze, over just about anything
