I'm not a huge fan of the material. I would rather something that wasn't so crinkly. I do like that it's machine washable and I love that it's a dual purpose scarf/nursing cover. I like it so much better than my Bebe Au Lait nursing cover and, because I can wear this nursing scarf, there's no worry about it taking up room in my diaper bag. The weight seems plenty fine for me, even in the winter months.
