Paisley Embroidered Wool Shawls
I'm buying this shawl for the second time, because I ruined the first one by washing it in hot water and then drying it in the drying machine. Don't do that - hand wash it in cold water and then let it air dry. The embroidery is stunning - beautiful color, detailed and covers almost all of the shawl. I've been getting a lot of compliments and I love it!
This shawl is exactly as beautiful and elegant as presented in the picture. It has the color and texture when touched as it is visually suggested in the picture. This is a beautiful art piece to be worn and displayed for elegant dinners and outings. I love it!
It's not as shiny as I thought it was. I thought there would be some shiny gold thread in it because of the photograph. The shawl has a nice matte finish with no sheen which makes it more appropriate to go with day wear or casual evening wear. Extremely well made. Looking forward to wearing it in the fall.
