"Beautiful shawl!"

This is my favorite shawl/scarf I own! It is lightweight cotton that can be used in warmer weather as well as cooler weather. The colors are beautiful as is the weaving and details such as the knotted fringe.

"Nice scarf"

My wife tell me she would have given the card a 5-star rating if it had been just a little bit softer. Perfect length, nice weave.
