Most scarves I find to be too heavy and bulky or too short or too long. I only have a couple that I actually like to wear. But I saw this on Amazon last winter and it was really cute and wasn't very expensive and most important it had cats on it. So I decided to get it for myself for Christmas. I'm really glad that I did. It's lightweight and sits at a good length when I loop it once. I was able to wear it with a lot of different outfits because it's black and has pops of white, red and blue from the cats. From a distance the cat pattern just looks like geometric shapes. But when someone is closer up to you, they notice it's cats. I think it is available in other colors as well.
