Is this scarf too overwhelming? I really liked the "modern twinset" look of my recent emerald green merino matching sweater and scarf (#5) and when I saw this teal scarf on sale after Christmas that matches an existing cashmere sweater, I decided to give it a try.

It is longer, wider and a bit thicker than the merino - a plus in some ways as I can use it for a travel wrap for cold airplanes. But I also want to wear it in everyday life and am not sure if it is just too big for my short frame.

Also, it seems the slightest bit itchy - I think it is me with dry winter skin and a sensitive neck due some new product that doesn't agree with me. (i stopped the cream a few days ago and the scarf is much better, but still.)

K/R? Any tips on softening? And how to style it?
