Channel your inner 60's child with this beautiful poncho! The fabric is soft and drapey, and it looks pretty close to the online images other than the one I received did not have the bright turquoise stitching. It is more of a muted blue and gray combination of yarns. The fringe is long and gives the poncho movement. There is a lot of fabric yet it is not heavy. It will keep you warm, and it will certainly work into the fall and winter. I'm only 5'2" so it kind of swallows me up, and it looks better on me with the sleeves rolled up a bit into cuffs. Yes, you could wear it inside out like the studio shots show, but you do lose some of the border trim and embroidery work. There is a small FP woven tag that you could snip off and a small FP copper tag, but if you wear your hair down, you would not see them. Very cool piece to add to your closet.
Rated 4 out of 5 Gorgeous Poncho!
I bought this poncho a few days ago. My concern was whether it was too much fabric for my height. I'm 5'6" and a size 8. But, I decided to get it. However, I would not have bought it had I been shorter.

This is the softest thing EVER. I want to live in it! The blue color is so rich and the touch of the yarn embroidery makes it so unique. I love that it has sleeves - I've tried other shawls without sleeves and they drive me crazy because I'm always readjusting it. This stays put and looks so effortless. I can see wearing this year-round! One of my favorite FP purchases ever!

I bought this as a present in the orange/black color before it went on sale and it is stunning. The pattern is a head turner as it drapes wonderfully in a loose boho fit. It is warm enough for Fall / chilly Summer nights and really cranks up an outfit a few megajoules. But I would caution anyone shorter than 5'6" to give it a try in a store first as it might overwhelm a shorter figure.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by jana sue made me look HUGE!
i wanted to LOVE this poncho, and ordered it as soon as it went on sale. it is very pretty, and i love the colors ... however, the fabric is clingy in a bad-knit sort of way and it is very, VERY oversized! i am not overweight by any means but the poncho made me look as though i was carrying an extra 50 pounds or so. if the price had been lower (even on sale) i might have kept it and risked cutting it to make it more flattering, but i really could not justify it. i hope that FP makes something in a similar color scheme but with a more flattering fabric or cut. sadly, it's being returned.

This did not work for me at all - I was annoyed to find that the colorful yarn stuck up in clumps when worn with the black side out (my preference), so you really can't wear this reversed as some reviews say. Made me look huge. I wanted to like this because it's very unique and the print is great, but I just cannot justify this purchase considering it made me feel enormous and tent like. Definitely better for long, lean, or slender body types. Curvy girls, it's a risk.

Sorry guys, I am not sure why this got rave reviews. I decided to purchase due to the great feedback as I was on fence. The material is quite light and it is average quality workmanship. I was disappointed but I so wanted to like it. Also, would be less likely to return had it not been so expensive!

By far the best piece of clothing in my closet. Although it is pricey, it's such a beautiful piece and so comfortable. Definitely happy with this purchase :)
