Mislabeled, adequate for price-just

Reviewed by Scarfed Chicago from Chicago on Thursday, October 13, 2011
The label on my scarf, the Mackeller pattern, says it comes from a mill called "Highland Tweeds". No mention of Moon anywhere to be found. Of course, the label was just held on with adhesive so maybe the factory put the wrong label on. Prior to ordering this scarf I had never heard of either Moon or Highland Tweeds, so it doesn't bother me all that much (except for the fact that it was stuck on, not sewn), but is something you should be aware of in the event your are some sort of huge Moon fan.

This scarf feels a solid 2-3 inches shorter than scarves I have worn before.

The (mis)label promises "The Feel of Scotland". If this scarf is representative of how Scotland feels, you can just go ahead and count me out of any future trips to Scotland. It's measurably itchier than other wool things I have.

Finally, the way this scarf is woven results in one side colored properly and one dull side. The dull side is rather drab. After the colorful side wears out, you won't want to flip this scarf over and wear it that way unless you want people to call you "Johnny sad-scarf".
