This cozy shawl is made from an amazingly soft blend of bamboo and silk fibers. The result is incredibly soft to the touch. I wove it loosely so that it will drape perfectly over your shoulders when you wear it. It is stretchy, so the size noted above depends a bit on how it is arranged.

Depending on your screen, the lightest stripes may look white. They are actually a very pale pink.

This is quite a thick, heavy yarn. Over half a kg went into making this shawl. Some of that was lost when the shawl was cut from the loom so it will weigh a little less than that.

A note about colour accuracy: I make the images look as close as possible to the real thing on my screen. They may look a bit different on the screen you are using. Some colours are hard to capture well and look much nicer in person.
