The mixed weights, chunky and even chunkier, create a nice 3 dimensional texture to the fabric, it almost looks woven, especially in the decorative rounds near the top. A great last minute gift. Especially for yourself if the weather has been cold & bitter. Ask me how I know.
It looks good around your head- if you had abundant hair, it'll flow out the top. I couldn't quite pull it off for the photos, but when I find a model who can, I'll add it in, OK?
Fun fact: Silk Garden Chunky is so much softer than it's skinnier Silk Garden kin. I don't know why, but it's true.
