Red Alpaca Wool Shawls
I was nervous about the colour before it arrived. Would it be the bright red (of the picture) or a darker shade (as indicated by another reviewer)? As soon as I opened the parcel I was relieved. It is a gorgeous shade of red. Definitely darker than what it seems online, which is much more suitable for pale skin! At first I thought this would was too big (I'm a size 6/8 and not too tall). But, actually, it is perfect. It's a one size fits all and drapes beautifully when you wrap one side over your shoulder. Hanging straight down though it may be a bit too long for me, but I would wear it draped anyway, so no issue. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece. I really love it. My only negative is that it's a little bit itchy. It's also quite heavy, but not too heavy. I imagine switching between wearing a long winter coat and this as it is very warm and provides lots of coverage. I think this would be beautiful in a cream colour! I think this would make a beautiful gift.
The weave & color is stunning and high quality. I like the weight of the alpaca yarn. It is lighter than sheep's wool and very soft. This is something you can wear almost anytime of year. I actually have it on as I write this review!

I could not be happier with this winter weight scarf/shawl - the pattern is beautiful (on both sides), and it's long, soft, and not bulky. I have had a hard time in the past few years finding long winter scarves that are not bulky (I usually only find those 'blanket' scarves that are unwieldy and bunch up by your face), but this one is perfect. Can't wait to wear it!
