Paracas Warrior Shawl/Scarf

Item #757691
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Magnficent I've been a PC customer forever. I have many pieces by now but have been to much of a slacker to take the time to write a review. This piece has driven me to do so. Its just gorgeous. I have a couple of dresses I decided needed a scarf to add some punch. I wanted something with teal in it but not to much teal as it would be impossible to find that perfect color. I happened upon this scarf/shawl in my search. I was hard pressed to pay full price for it - I have so many PC pieces from over the years I really only chase the sales these days. But this shawl just would not let go of me. I finally took the plunge and bought it - so glad I did. Its gorgeous. Wonderful size, weight, and drape. Big enough to indeed serve as a shawl but the drape and weave is such that it is a fantastic scarf without being to bulky and bunchy. The colors are amazing. As another poster said - it goes with everything. Really it does. Its like a chameleon. If you are on the fence on this scarf - don't be - buy it. This will be one of those pieces you will reach for again and again and again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely and Lustrous The silk and Alpaca fabric has a great feel. It hangs nicely however you wear it. This piece is large enough to use as a shawl, soft enough to fold, wrap and tie as a scarf. It is reversible. One side is predominately plum or aubergine; the other is gray. I prefer the gray side. It pairs well with several of my leather jackets that are in shades of tan, tobacco and cognac. I didn't give it five stars for two reasons. One, I think it is priced a bit high for what it is. Two, the long sides are unfinished. There is no roll hem or finished woven edge - just a very short fringe that is not decorative. I am accustomed to keeping my PC pieces for a long time. But I'm not sure how well these unfinished edges will fare with even careful hand washing. Other than that, this is a very nice piece and would make a good gift for someone who appreciates global textiles.
