What is this?!

Genuinely not sure what this is. Received for my birthday. From Fat Face. Made of very fine cotton/muslin fabric. It is like a tube of fabric (not stretchy) but there is no drawstring or elastic or anything.
I am hoping I have uploaded a photo of me with it, just to give an idea of size.
Please help as I need to write a thank you letter smile

Umm.... One of those circle scarf thingies? Have you looked on the Fat Face website?

It looks like an enormous petticoat! Was it from you mil?!

Giant, unstructured lampshade?

Have you told her you're planning to beef up a bit for the winter?

I agree with Roobix - I think it's a circular scarf (for looping & artistic draping).

I thought for a moment it was Queen Victoria's petticoat....

You lot make me laugh! Not from mil (she loves me and buys me fab presents smile) but from my cousin. I feel it maybe regifted as her bday is July!
I think you're right, I think it may be a snoody scarf thingy. I'll have a little play with it. Thanks everyone

"Thank you for the lovely present. It was very kind"

What the fuck is it, though? Do they hate you? grin

You write thank you letters? <misses point of thread> Am I supposed to do that as an adult?! I'll have a massive back log to catch up on! Why didn't my DM tell me?!?

Thanks PurpleHairAndPearls that sounds perfect grin
OrangeSquashTallGlass I always say thank you, so if they live a distance away (and I can't bring myself to ring!) then yes, a hand written thank you letter. But this is the only one I have to do this birthday smile

Can we have a photo of you wearing it please grin?

I'm going to go with the scarf idea.
