I live in the south, not out west, but really wanted to try out this wild rag. I LOVE it. I typically hate things on my neck, I can’t wear regular scarves or title necks because I can’t stand the feeling on my neck. With this silk, I can’t even tell it’s on!! It’s the best. I didn’t see the grayed carriages on the fabric before I bought and didn’t know if I would like them wearing it around but I am completely sold!
