Size, color & price are its best features
The size, color & price of this scarf are its best features. I always prefer silk to poly or rayon because of its unique feel. I also personally like square scarves that are a medium size, which this is, because the large ones are overwhelming. I was happy to find this one in three colors because they're great spring colors. I was disappointed, however, with the feel of the fabric--it's heavier & less soft than I was hoping, yet serviceable. The colors could have been a bit softer as well. Considering the price and lack of availability of nice silk scarves I am well content.

Overpriced for the Quality
This scarf was a bit of a disappointment. Instead of the flattish medium green in the photo it is rather bright - predominantly "spring green". The pattern print is not very detailed and sharp. Additionally, although it is silk, it must be a poor quality silk as it has a polyester feel. I will keep it because it will probably be ok with what I am planning to wear with it, but this is less than I expected. . I have 2 other items coming and I'm hoping they will be ok, as I this is a first time order with Appleseed's.
