"the softest creamiest fabric in feminine lace"

This was my very first purchase and it is a dream! I could not wait for it to become colder here in the high desert to start wearing it. I wore it over a hot pink top and white pants and it looked lovely. It is light enough to wear as a scarf but big enough to cover the back and sides as well. It is remarkably soft and very, very warm, really versatile for fall and even cold winters. The light weight is especially nice for women who have back or neck pain, it does make a difference wearing this kind of softest alpaca next to one's skin I find. The color is like vanilla and it doesnt seem to get dirty too fast although it is such a light color and I have a black Lab and another dog and live in the country and have worn it already a few times without having to clean it. Such a wonderful cloak, and it really looks great in white, just stunning with light hair, either blonde or white as well.
