The poncho is beautiful! It is so firmly blended with a fine grained wool fabric finish- yes it’s surprisingly soft and strong! The fur within the head cover is amazing! My daughter will have this for her whole life! It’s big for her now but just wait! She won’t care. I was lucky to get this color and the staff helped me get the payment properly done! You all did fantastic! I highly recommend you. The speed with which you where able to send it and the thick string wrapped with the lavender/violet card. Awesome and Thank you!!!!!!
