The large scarf (46" square) can be used for a shawl or tablecloth. The colors are neutral enough to go with most any coat or dress. They are a muted steel gray, black, and a touch of muted red orange to give this piece a splash of color. I don't know what it is made of but it feels like a woven cotton but I am sure there must be some polyester since it doesn't seem to wrinkle. No spots, tears or rips, in very good condition. Not a silky look at all. Check out the pictures.
