I love this shawl, its lightweight and warm and could probably be also worn as a scarf. I am very happy with my purchase.

"Sophisticated casual style"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Love it---would love to see it in more colors. Speaking of color, I would not call mine cranberry red...it is more wine-colored or bordeaux than how it appears online. I hope to see more of the 100% baby alpaca sweaters--not a fan of blends. (While in Peru they never had my size so I really appreciate the XL sizes they offer at Novica :-)
