"Petrol chakana : Soft, delicate and hopefully warm"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its well made. Soft and yes, one has to wear it very carefully as while wearing one can feel the threads..wished there was an inner protective layer for protection..and as far as the color is concerned, i must say, its not exactly blue but a petrol color. So, if you are in an impression if it was a sky blue or a turquoise color, its not. Its petrol color. Soft nonetheless.
