"So beautiful!"

This shawl has a gorgeous weave and beautiful color! Its a little stiff, but a good weight for cool, rather than cold nights. I find myself looking for ways to wear it.

"Beautiful! Just the right weight."

My puppy damaged our first one but I kept it to have shams made from the remains. We ordered a new one, which the puppies are not allowed to touch. I cannot tell you how beautiful this is and it is so well made. It is definitely an heirloom piece. It is a little larger than normal king size which i love. Keeps us covered and not competing for cover as we sleep. Perfect for Deep South Texas hot weather. The thread and weave are thick and tight enough to make for a very durable and weighty but still light compared to blankets, comforters or quilts. Loved it so much I bought an ivory one and am now back for another of this colorful one just in case something happens to the one I have. My only suggestion would be to improve the color match of the tassel thread to be brighter like the colors in the weave. Still, I LOVE it and LOVE Carmen for sharing her beautiful art with us.
