Lighter weight yarn in a cotton and acrylic blend makes this the ideal transitional scarf and hat set, or a great winter set for a milder climate like the one I happen to live in (Tucson, AZ). Lovely shades of gray follow each other in graduated stripes, followed by a short burst of lime green, orange, and pink on white! Pizazz with class, a variation on a classic, and a great little set. One end of the scarf pulls through a slit in the other, just above the flared ends, so it stays on without worry and is very comfortable. Neck portion of the scarf is approximately 4 inches wide, not too wide for comfort and not too narrow for function. Great gift for someone special!
