December 23, 2013 - Just love the color of this scarf and the open-weave look!
December 20, 2013 - Pure cotton is my preference. The colors are blended from bold to gentle. It looks delicate, but handles as a sturdy product. Bought for South Florida in the autumn, its perfect for chilly indoor air conditioning. Just lovely. Thanks to Novica.
December 1, 2013 - I recently purchased the grass colored scarf and like the way it lays and looks. I agree that the weave is so loose that it is beginning to unweave. Still it is for a very good cause.
November 24, 2013 - Although the colors of the grass scarf are pretty, the fabric is really thin and has no body. The gauze threads snag very easily and when worn, the scarf hangs like a rag. Very disappointed.
November 21, 2013 - Beautiful! Very light, airy and delicate. All 3 recipients will love them and it's even more special that they have provided food for the hungry.
