I bought this not having much hope it would be what I was looking for. I've bought and returned many different styles of ponchos and pashminas over the years because they just weren't quite what I was looking for. Turns out, I just needed a blanket scarf with arm holes. Perfect to toss around my neck to keep me but also easy to drape around me when there's a draft but not have it fall off my shoulders because I'm writing or gesturing wildly. Definitely a keeper!
