"Splendor" is most certainly an apt description of this garment. It is beautifully made, feels soft to the hand (and chin), and such glorious colours! I" cor one, could not be happier. Isidoro's artistry is most evident, and I most sincerely commend his work. I could not be happier with the service of Novica, either. Such beautiful presentation, and timely delivery. Just WOW!

"Love my new poncho with attached scarf!"
This is a beautiful, soft and comfortable poncho . . . warm but not too heavy. I love the attached scarf and buttons (although buttons are only on one side, but that's not a big deal). It is reversible although that's not obvious at first because of the white fiber content label and Novica label on the "inside". I had to remove both labels in order to make it truly reversible, and it was a little tricky removing the labels without damaging the fabric. I would have given it 5 stars if they had just attached the labels with a safety pin or something so I didn't have to remove them. Even if I didn't want to take advantage of the "reversible" feature I would have at least removed the fiber content label because it was bright white and stuck out like a sore thumb at the bottom of the poncho. (Even though the label was on the "inside" it was still visible when I was wearing it.) Other than that I love it and I'm definitely keeping it!
