I am very impressed with this garment. The colors and patterns are very intricate. It is finished nicely also. I will enjoy wearing it. The buttons on the sides help give the ruana shape.

"GORGEOUS! Lightweight, colorful, unique"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Of all the wonderful things that I have purchased from Novica, this is my favorite! It is so colorful and unique! Every time I wear it, someone comments on how lovely it is. I also appreciate the fact that it is quite light weight so you do not feel too warm in it nor does it add bulk.

"lovely scarf"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This scarf arrived and beautifully packaged. Included was a post card of Machu Picchu-very lovely and a mini doll (!) on the package. The scarf was put in a lovely paper gift wrap. The scarf itself was lovely. The pattern on the scarf is light and delicate. I cant wait for the weather to turn colder so I can wear my scarf. The yarn is so soft and cuddly
