To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As others have stated, this most definitely is not actual silk. It has none of the characteristics of silk other than being "silky feeling". I'm not sure how they get away with blatant false information, but I knew when I bought it that it was highly unlikely it would be silk. The price alone is a dead giveaway.
All that said, it is a beautiful print and the size is generous. Just what I was looking for. It feels nice and smooth against the skin. The color is exactly as shown. For all those reasons, it saddens me to have to give it only two stars. If only they had not deliberately been deceitful by making false claims... I could have happily given it 5 stars.
One way to tell if a material is real silk is by rubbing it between your hands. Real silk gets warm. Synthetics don't. This scarf is not real silk. I would not have bought it if I knew before purchasing. It does look nice from a distance and I will probably find some use for it. I did end up buying a real silk scarf from a local shop which I plan to wear more regularly. Real silk feels amazing to the touch.
