OMG! This is so much nicer than I anticipated! It's soft to the touch (I'd rate it about an 8 (10 being really soft)) and the look of the shrug is about a 9. The underside is lined with a material that is soft enough that it isn't scratchy nor irritating. It's isn't silk but definitely comfortably smooth. The label says the the item is 100% polyester. It definitely looks classy and I'm picky about these kind of things. I highly recommend this item. For the price and the quality of the look, you can't beat it because I've been SHOPPING for this item. So far, I haven't come accross a value like this one before. It's a must buy if you need a classy shrug for a fancy night out.
Note: I took 1 star off because the item has a funky smell to it. It'll have to be aired out and/or washed before it gets used.
Elegant for ladies,perfect for brides, bridal parties, shows and any other formal occasion
