This shawl was worth the wait. The photo in the catalog and online are beautiful but just can't due justice to the item in your hands. So intricate and delicate, almost sheer in spots, it is really something special!
Big problem was that the photo does not match the shawl in real life. The shawl I received is hardly lavender or lavender. It is a very dark aubergine. Fortunately I am giving this as a gift so the great color disparaty shouldn't be a problem. If I had bought this for myself, I would be very disappointed.
This was purchased because I have a very simple pale blue dress and wanted to dress it up. I was a great purchase because it it is light and not silk which can be slithery. I loved the pattern and the colors were subdued but striking.
