I found the scarf to be perfectly sized. It provides the opportunity to be worn long or, due to its thinness, be folded and worn short. The color is beautiful and compliments all of my jackets, all different in color. Due to the thinness, I wouldn't recommend it for winter wear in the Northeast of America. I wore it through the fall season and as an accessory to some dresses/outfits during the winter. Beautifully crafted and designed!
