- Christine Ambrose S.Verified BuyerRated 5 out of 5 starsGreat soft colour, feel & drape
I saw this scarf first, either online or in a small catalogue received by post a while ago. My initial thoughts were that I loved the colours, the material being velvet, and that it would be so useful, but as I am under 5' tall, it would probably overwhelm me. I eventually sent for it and tried it on over a black t-shirt AND ABSOLUTLY LOVED IT! I thought it might be bulky but in fact it is soft and supple and drapes well. I was right about the colour suiting me (I am very pale with creamy white hair). It has hints of dark blue in the cloth so will also be great over navy or shades of dark blue clothing. It will be perfect for dressing up casual clothing or with smarter separates. I will need to be careful if wearing in restaurants or where food & drink is involved as it needs to be dry cleaned - two ten mile round trips, parking hassle and several days during cleaning, but never mind.

Fantastic design and velvet. Pre-purchase did not appreciate that it is backed in a different fabric- muslin/ gauze- had assumed it was velvet on both sides, given the price. Have kept as colours fit several jackets and coats and the different fabric makes for a less heavy scarf but will not purchase similar if sold next Autumn.
