I wanted to buy a grey one but there are loads on eBay now. I know the one everyone was discussing was about a tenner but there are some even cheaper there now. Will they be the same scarf?

(Can't believe I'm asking about quality of a 4.99 scarf versus an 8.99 one!)

Which one do I need??!

Neither - they are all horrible! I can't imagine anything being nice for that price tbh <scarf snob> grin

I have three - grey, blue and classic leopard print and they are fab - light, warm and a good seize. I bought mine [http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Celebrity-Hot-Large-Animal-Leopard-Print-Shawl-Scarf-/130495998779?pt=Women_s_Accessories_UK&var=&hash=item641f1c2add#ht_15635wt_957 here]

bollocks to cheap meanng shite, too

Cheap doesn't always mean shite BUT they look nylon and scratchy <runs very fast from the thread!> wink

no..i got one and it's very soft!

designer tatty on the edges and just the right leopard print. just the right side of Bet Lynch territory

i did look at others but they were smaller, this one is very fine and scrunches up very small, does not crease and drapes lovely! :D

valiumredhead Sat 21-Jan-12 16:11:12

Hmmmmm how long are they? <slowly changing mind!>

Catsmamma Sat 21-Jan-12 16:16:41

mine is veeeeeeeeeeeery long

all around neck, and do ridiculous over under crossover in front with adequate end length and not tight enough to choke.

this is mine

Not sure it's the same link as above (same picture though, and not sure it is really actual cashmere silk but i am pleased with it!

And as a random aside the cat made a nest and slept on it, and she is a terrible snob...only really likes to sleep on my good bed linen or best patchwork quilt!

valiumredhead Sat 21-Jan-12 16:46:18

Hmmmm I like the grey one - leopard skin looks too Bet Lynch imo. Ok, I might be eating my words here! grin

I have gone right off scarfs as every one is wearing them especially animal print. I got bought one for xmas (leopard print) and it looks chavy and makes me feel frumpy. Am really turning into a grumpy old woman grin

Thankyou I've ordered the purple one smile

PeriPathetic Sat 21-Jan-12 17:07:24

Is there anyway to find these off EBay? I can't use EBay or PayPal sad

PeriPathetic Sat 21-Jan-12 17:10:17

Ah cancel that - I've found them on Amazon!

Deuce Sat 21-Jan-12 18:19:41

Primark have an identical one for £3

MrsMeow Sat 21-Jan-12 19:56:31

I've got the purple one and have worn it to death smile New Look have v similar ones, including red which is really nice.

NannyPlumIsMyMum Sat 21-Jan-12 21:27:09

My MNet scarf is sooo soft !
Not at all cheap looking . Have a look at the reviews on Amazon - it doesn't have a bad review.
I have the blue on black and I'm getting the pink one for spring .

NannyPlumIsMyMum Sat 21-Jan-12 21:30:45

Mrs Meow I very very nearly got the purple one , but didn't because its my DDs favourite colour and although she is only 6 I would definetly lose it to her . I can just imagine her marching into school with it on .. I was horrified to find my Stila lipgloss in her book bag.

Dreya Sat 21-Jan-12 21:50:57

NannyPlumIsMyMum that made me chuckle. I have the brown leopard print one and agree that it is very soft, very long and I have worn it to death. No other scarf has had a look in this winter. It washes well and is flattering. I can't fault it. I even wore it as a sarong! I am worried that I have worn it too much...It has become my uniform, leopard print scarf, same coat....I might need to get a pink one for Spring too ;)

anniewoo Sat 21-Jan-12 22:06:28

Please tell me -what is the Mnet scarf???

Eglu Sat 21-Jan-12 22:13:51

My Mum got me a black one for Christmas. It is fabby. I love it, can wear it in so many differetn ways. I do feel the need for a pink one for summer too though.

Cherrypie32 Sat 21-Jan-12 22:17:54

Have just ordered 'pink border' to feel spring like!

SleepyFergus Sat 21-Jan-12 22:21:42

I have the purple one and brown one and love them both. My mum has the blue one and several work mates have various other colours. They are great value for a tenner.

HOWEVER, I think I saw Cora (old bag mum of Tanya) in Eastenders wearing the blue one the other day.......Hmmmm!

PPPop Sat 21-Jan-12 22:22:16

I have the brown and just got the grey and the price has gone down since I got the first one. Truly bargainous for the quality. Soft and huge. Am toying with getting a purple one too.

SleepyFergus Sat 21-Jan-12 22:27:36

Purple one is gorge....my fave out of my two.
