I absolutely love it! The colors are subtle yet coordinated. The fabric is rich and can be worn on a cool breezy day or for added warmth over a coat on a winter day. I highly recommend it!

Gorgeous and versatile
I am a weaver myself so I have great appreciation for the fine quality of this shawl with it?s pretty colors and fine workmanship. While I haven?t yet worn it since It just arrived a couple days ago, the shawl will be very useful, especially for transitional seasons. It has some weight and heft to it and should drape nicely. There are multiple ways to wear it and the colors are perfect for dressing up any outfit, not to mention adding a bit of warmth when needed. . I expect many compliments and will be happy to recommend the weaver who created this beautiful piece.
