I have very sensitive skin, and used to think all scarves made me itchy, but not this one. I can loop it around my neck three times so it’s nice and warm in snowy weather.
The scarf isn't too thick, so maybe not the right choice for winter (where I'm from). I love wearing it in fall/spring because it doesn't make me sweat.
The design is simple but beautiful. It's not too fancy, but not too plain either. I like the way it feels on my skin. I also noticed it had a faint smell (like another reviewer here). So I washed it. No big deal!
I get very sensitive skin around my neck and always thought it's because of the shaving. After wearing this scarf for a week, the itching around my neck has disappeared. I did some research and found out that it's likely due to the chemical free production and dye process of this scarf, it seems to be more gentle to skin than polyester or synthetic dye.
I love the scarf, it's my new favorite! I have been to Laos (close to where these are made) and appreciate the craftsmanship.
