Scarf is well made, the teal color is deep yet vibrant, not too thick, not too thin. Have not washed it yet, but so far am very pleased !
The teal is a great color and was much appreciated by the always discerning person who I gave it to as a holiday present. Remember, it comes twisted to preserve its crinkley-ness!
