Details

Women in a textile workshop in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley take scraps of silk left from the production of saris and weave them into a uniquely textured yarn. Knit or crocheted, they transform what would otherwise be discarded into cozy winter accessories that brighten the dreariest days. This scarf and hat set is decorated with beads and traditional mirrored disks that are intended to ward off the evil eye.

"Xmas present"

My wife liked the hat and scarf very much. It was well made and the colors and design were great. It was a timely gift for the cold weather season.

"Sheds"

Unless you are wearing this with "throw away" clothes, it should be avoided. It sheds and the strands are difficult to remove from nice clothing

"Shed terribly!!! Workmanship of poor."

It was to be given as a gift. I would have over look the workmanship if it didn't shed so bad.

"Both the hat and scarf are beautiful and are as presented in"

Some of the stitches inthe scarf on the edge are quite loose, but I think this is the style.

"Didn't hold up as well as expected"

The little designs are not sewn on properly so some of them fall off.

"What a disappointment"

I should have read the reviews before wasting the high shipping charges. The scarf was damaged upon receipt with a two inch hole in it and the fringe was falling off. The hat would not fit a newborn. Smelled awful. I never had any silk item smell like this. Very disappointed that Nat'l Geographic would even offer to sell this item.

"Nice Product...Poor Order Processing!"

Product quality and price were fine. It's in the order processing that leaves a lot to be desired. I plainly indicated that it was to be gift wrapped and included a personal message and I was charged for it. The parcel arrived not gift wrapped and spoiled the surprise with the recipient not knowing that it was a Christmas gift. Nat Geo refunded the $ 5.00 but that's not the point. The order form plainly showed that it was to be gift wrapped. Somehow, Nat Geo thinks that just refunding the gift wrapping charge makes it all okay. I'll think again about buying here online and will probably shop somewhere else that pays more attention to order details.

"Love it!"

This was a Christmas gift for my wife. She loves it. Says she will hand wash. No funny smells, just a great combo with a interesting story. Highly recommend. If you do have a issue National Geographic will provide excellent customer service.

"It sheds a lot"

I should of read the reviews before ordering. The material is not soft or silky, it looks better on the pictures. Has a bad odor and sheds a lot.

"Hat will fit a newborn!"

I bought 2 sets of this lovely hat/scarf set to use as Christmas gifts for two friends. I was excited when they arrived, but my excitement was short lived as the hat was soooo small (on both sets) that I was forced to return both sets to Nat Geo. The agent was very helpful when I phoned my concern. Am awaiting post paid return label by mail.

"Really cute"

It sheds initially. After the first wearing it stretches to fit. I haven't washed it yet so I can't comment on that. Colors are great; goes with everything. I get compliments every time I've worn it.

"I think I like it"

Sheds a little. I'm not going to worry about it and besides I like to buy from women that are trying to make a better life for themselves and family. It makes me feel good.

"Beautiful set, but some problems too"

This was a beautiful scarf and hat set. But, the material is a bit scratchy and the hat is REALLY small considering I bought it for my teenage granddaughter and it barely fits her head - which is not large.
