The scarf is a lovely colour (dark red) with and would be very warm for winter, but so big! Why are scarves so big these days. You wouldn't be able to wear it under a fastened coat without looking like a pigeon. It's my own fault I suppose for not checking the measurements so I had to send it back. I know this is the fashion now but for those of us who don't like big scarves there should be a normal-sized alternative. I shan't buy any more scarves online.
