Paisley Wool Black 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!
The material is a gauzy, thin, quality wool (not quite transparent). The colors are bright and as pictured. It is a playful, elegant, sophisticated way to add warmth with fine design work. The only thing I would say is that I've been looking for years for a wool scarf to rival a jamawar scarf I lost, and this one is not quite it. It does not have the fine detail work of my lost scarf, but rather a chunky, dot matrix sort of look to the design. It's still beautiful in its own way, but I add this detail as it can be difficult to ascertain online. Also, great customer support, Novica. I purchased this scarf for my wedding (six weeks out), and Donna was great making sure I got the item in time.
