Be enveloped in a comfy hug- these small shawls are cozy without being heavy. They are a bit wider and longer than our scarves, and can be worn as a small shawl or bunchy scarf. The size is ample for either use. The silk is lustrous, durable, and soft. You don't have to baby it- throw it in your bag and you're off! Wild silk is warm and breathable. It magically seems to adjust to the weather- letting air in when it's warmer and insulating when it's colder. Dimensions are approximately 18" x 80" (as these are completely hand-made, each piece can be slightly different but will not vary much).
