Don't expect too much
on 20 December 2014
My red shawl arrived this morning and it is a nice red ... however, it is NOT, in my opinion, genuine cashmere. The stuck on label leaves a glue mark and pulled threads - it is too unsightly in that position to leave on. Good quality scarves would never have a label like that. This scarf is very similar to some that I have bought previously for a fraction of this cost - they were made of viscose. I was surprised at the cheap price but reckoned it was worth a try given the reviews. I have a number of different quality cashmere pashminas some of which cost more than 8 times as much so I know a bit about cashmere and scarves. Having said that, the colour is nice and it is a usable shawl ... if I can remove the remains of the label.
Edit: Label could not be removed so I'll reduce this review to 2 stars
