lovely colors, goes with a number of tops, lightweight and not bulky to wear

I only gave these 3 stars. I bought 3 and they are a rough gauze, very thin weave product that has little burrs that make the scarfs stick together. When you wear these as a scarf under a jacket it's nice and warm but sticks together and by the time you take it off it's a long stuck together tube. The colors are wonderful and they are very warm but my only complaint is the roughness and sticking together.

I just bought the ocean one. Although it looks pretty the weaves are very loose. I've just had it a week, and one thread is already dangling away towards freedom. Nonetheless, I gave it three stars anyways because I didn't expect it to be warm, but it is!
