Peruvian Solid Alpaca Wool Blend 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 picture online doesn't do this shawl justice. It is beautiful. I wanted a solid colored shawl to wear with patterned tops. It's perfect!
It is everything described in the details. So rich and well made. I can't wait for an occasion to wear it. Thank you Raquel and Gregor.
