Love the colors and the style but it is too itchy for me.

I bought the brown, green, multicolor and purple scarfs for gifts and one for myself. Love the colors! I wanted to keep them all, but didn't! My only complaint is the weave is VERY loose so it is easily picked. At first I was disappointed how light weight the scarf is but after wearing it I was fine with it. It kept me warm in the cold wind.

Good value for the price. Might be a little itchy for some people. I like it to keep the chill off my neck with my lightweight down jacket and it's not so warm that I can't leave it on inside, ususally.
