I purchased this shawl for my daughter who is a professional musician. She'll wear it for performances, and receptions and it will be most definitely be received as an artist's masterpiece! SOFT...beyond belief, and such classic colors. Absolutely lovely!

"An important part of my clothing"

This is a great piece, big enough to cover your whole back or thin enough to make it into an elegant/designed scarf. Great material and the real alpaca!
