I was so looking forward to receiving this scarf in the mail. It does not dissapoint but it was not quite what I was expecting. The pictures make it look as though if left unlooped it would hang down to just past your chest but it actually hangs down to the top of my knees. I will wear it looped. The color seemed more of a bright cream color in the picture and a thicker material. In reality the color is more of a washed out greyish/or dirty cream (hard to describe) color. and the material is much more sheer in appearance than I thought. All in all it's a beautiful scarf and very soft. Will be very cozy for fall and winter days.
