I got this for my wife just a few days before Christmas. It was shipped right away and arrived with time to spare. When she opened it -- she liked it and wanted to keep it. It was easy to shop for and purchase the scarf and upon receiving it found it to be excellent.
Very soft, very well made. It is a little stiff from the tightness of the weave, which is a good thing. You can see the way it drapes the model like a bent board. That may soften it up over time and it seems like it could hold up well and be worn often.....watch the car doors ;)
