"Beautiful feeling fabric"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The shawl is a lovely weight of silk, unfortunately the colours in photo are quite different from the actual item received. The shawl is only two colours, bright aqua and navy, whereas the photo shows more of an overall green colour with bits of red. Will still be able to wear it but am hesitating to buy more based on the inaccuracy of colours in photos.
