They are beautiful and supersoft!
I fold it and wrap it around my neck to protect from the harsh Minnesota winter wind. If I get cold in the evening I unwrap it and throw it over my shoulders. Super soft wool with a natural, beautiful look.
It's so soft and so versatile - fold it up and it will keep your neck so toasty warm on those cold winter days, unwrap it and you can cover your shoulders. I love it.
This provides extra warmth and coziness on colder days; helps keeps the wind off my neck and works perfectly when I feel like wrapping myself up in layers of softness.
I think the New Zealand wool is merino, very fine and very warm.
