This scarf is more vibrant online than in-person. Also, the scarf is very thin compared to other blanket scarves I own. I actually like my blanket scarves to be thick, if I wanted something thinner I would purchase a pashmina. This is intended as a gift, but I will return rather than gifting it.
This beautiful scarf is indeed a small blanket. It has a flannel-like nap, and is long enough to keep out those relentless winter winds. The color is a great shade of dark khaki, which my husband described as "classy". It is classy, and the plaid accent stripes as just the right amount of additional color. This is a great value!
I bought this thinking it was more like the black, purple and teal blanket scarf I purchased last year. No. The plaid is only on the ends of the scarf, a bummer when the reason I bought it was the for nice plaid. The scarf was very scratchy which may have been lessened by washing it but I didn't like the fact that it felt like burlap right out of the package.
The pretty plaid is only on the ends of the scarf. The plaid that runs the length of the scarf is very faint and looks like you're looking at the reverse side of the material it's so faint. Other than that, it's very soft and very warm.
