Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not have the drape shown in photo The colors in this poncho are very beautiful. However, the material is much stiffer than it appears in the photo. As a result it does not have the drape that I had expected. Is there something I could do to improve the drape?? Dry cleaning perhaps??

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made It is a well made poncho. However, I was surprised about the material. Much heavier and rougher than I thought it would be. Otherwise, it is quite interesting and I like it as an unusual sort of textile folk art piece. Although I am tall and thin, it is ALOT of material to carry around. It is a conversation piece however and ultimately, I am happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Show Stopping Poncho This poncho is stiffer than I had expected but it has relaxed with a good bashing in the tumble dryer. It is striking, warm and will become, I am sure, a constant companion. As there are no washing instructions, I would appreciate your advice? Perhaps the Gauchos never clean them!
