The Paracas culture flourished in present-day Peru from the seventh to the first century B.C. When archaeologists discovered the Great Paracas Necropolis on the Pacific coast in the 1920s, it included a remarkably preserved woven textile, colored with natural dyes, featuring winged supernatural figures. The geometric garments worn by those shamanic figures are the inspiration for our ultrasoft baby alpaca and silk scarf, which uses similar earth-toned colors.
Made in Lima, Peru. 70% baby alpaca/30% silk. 15 3/4"W x 66 1/4"L.
The colors of the actual scarf has nothing to do with what is shown here, which shouldn't have done by NG. I tried to attach a picture here, but was not allowed by the software. I am putting the picture on the NG/NGS Facebook page. You can see it there and judge it yourself. It is as different as black and white and if you see the picture, you will see if it is an overstatement. This was supposed to be a gift for my sister. Absolute disappointment from a beloved institution.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
