"Beautifully wonven"

This scarf is true to the description with beautiful muted colors and exceptional weaving It goes with every one of my winter coats, from black to green to hot pink! Thin and easy to wear. Warm without being bulky. I just paid $45 less than 2 weeks ago, so the sale price is a real bargain.

"Soft, practical, beautiful"

Fast delivery from Bolivia to NY. Multicolored with fringes makes it useful to dress up many of my solid tips. Handmade without looking handmade. 100% Alpaca is hypoallergenic which is why I chose this over others made with wool.

"Nice...."

Definitely very pretty. Not as wide as specified, so a bit skimpy, and more itchy than I expected for a neck scarf (and I'm a wool lover) hence knocking off a star. Glad I got it at the sale price.

"Beautiful but skimpy"

I had to buy a second one of these and am trying to find matching yarn to sew the two together. My daughter once had a scarf very much like this-same fiber, colors and stripe, also from NG but bought about 12 years ago. It was nice and wide and therefore substantial enough to be warm. She lives between Germany and Russia and needs the warmth, and was heartbroken when she lost the original one. I was so excited to find this on NG, but very disappointed to find that it is far less in bulk than the original--probably 1/3 the bulk of the other scarf.

"I expected a heavier scarf"

I just was not impressed. The piture was pretty but I felt like there was not enough yarn to make a bigger scarf, the yarn was scratchy and had no bulk. I really tried to like this scarf. It's beautiful but it could be make with more bulky yarn into a more cosy scarf. Let me feeling out in the cold.

"Not a winter scarf"

First of all, anyone who says this is great for winter or staying warm is either deluded or lives somewhere without winter. I received this as a gift from my mother who assumed, from the weave, tassel, and appearance, this would be a thicker, winter scarf. Its not really elegant enough to be the kind of scarf one would normally wear as an accessory. I hate to tell my mom she wasted her money, but she did. This thing is too thin, small, and skimpy to do anything against a good wind or cold. The color is beautiful and the fabric is very soft and would be warm. But overall, the thing is just not substantial enough to be functional. Very disappointing.

"Soft and Warm"

Use this scarf as both a fashion statement and cold weather scarf. I prefer wool and especially lightweight alpaca which is warm without the weight of most wools. Colors were muted, as pictured, and the reason I was attracted to the scarf. It is a versatile mid length.

"Disappointed in this purchase"

Colors mostly dark & muted. Not the bright pastels shown in photo. Colors are not a slight variation but a significant variation. Material is very thin. Too short. Fringe is included in the 70" length. Looks somewhat cheap! Probably will return scarf.

"A little disappointed"

I was looking for something different for my daughter who has many scarves. I was a little disappointed with this one. It is shorter, thinner and narrower than I expected. Also the color is predominantly purple. Just not as good as the picture made it look.

"A scarf, not a shawl"

I found a couple of defects in the assembly, so I never wore the shawl. It was too thin and fragile to be used as a scarf or shawl over a coat. I have it packaged to exchange it for a scarf and hat set.

"Very beautiful and very soft."

I almost didn't order this scarf because of the reviews, but I thought it was so pretty in the picture that I couldn't resist. I am so glad I did order it; it is beautiful! It is NOT too short, and the colors are true to the picture. I will wear this as a belt, as a scarf for accent, and to wrap around my neck in cold weather. The length is longer that I thought it would be, and I love it!

"I love this scarf"

It's true what the reviews say, that the colors are more muted than shown. But I just loved those soft colors. The scarf was very soft and sometimes too warm for this warm California winter this year. It did snag very easily. I very often got compliments on it. Only problem is I lost it and will have to buy another one because I love it so much.

"Beautiful Scarf"

This is a beautiful scarf. I ordered it to give as a gift. It's soft and not scratchy at all. It's very soft wool. It's not as long as stated and the fringe isn't as long as is shown. The scarf is muted blues and purples. You won't find bright colors as shown in the catelog. Forget the online view. This scarf does not look as it does in the catelog I get in the mail. However, knowing from others to expect a muted look, I still was very happy with the scarf and think it's a beautiful classy look. I'm very happy with the purchase and I would recommend this scarf, as long as you know ahead of time it won't have the lighter bright colors that are shown in the catelog and online. I would suggest that National Geographic reshoot the scarf and put a new picture in the catelog to reflect the more muted look of this scarf.

I was pleased with the colors, but though it is 'soft' it is also scratchy. I'd prefer it longer, but the quality of the scarf is entirely acceptable.

"Colors are misrepresented"

The colors were muted, not even close in color to what is shown in the catalog. Do not purchase if you are looking for bright colors, you will be disappointed. When returning the product, NG held my return for two weeks and still didn't credit my account. It took a phone call and providing my postal tracking number and five additional days after that, before I received a credit. Overall my first(and last) experience with NG was not a happy one.

"Itchy but pretty"

This alpaca scarf is beautiful and colorful, and it goes with a lot of colors in my wardrobe. It is itchy, though, and I have to wear it with turtleneck shirts. My other Novica alpaca scarves that are from Peru are not itchy. I love the long fringes. If you are sensitive to wool, you may have to wear this scarf over another fabric rather than directly on your neck. In the winter, I wear a scarf indoors every day. It makes a big difference.

"Absolutely Stunning!"

The scarf is stunning! The picture does not do the beautiful colors justice. It is longer than I thought (not a bad thing!) and width is perfect. I did not realize when I purchased that the colors of the scarf mirror a Bolivian sunset. Awesome story, so unique. Someone else posted this scarf is not long enough to wrap around your neck more than once. That is absolutely incorrect. As I write this, my scarf is wrapped TWICE around my neck.
