lol....i know, i know, the pun possibilities are endless... i just bought a gorgeous scarf from ebay, but i'm a little bit concerned. the scarf is older, though i'm not sure how old (the design is 'umbrelles et parapluies', so i'm guessing one of the experts here knows exactly how old it is!), and has been apparently stored in its box & unused since it's purchase at the flagship store. anyway. the scarf is stiff, like someone used spray starch on it. the creases all appear to be original, and i believe the claim that the scarf is unused...but is it strange that it's so stiff? i'm just wondering if it is indeed starch, meaning it will soften over time, or whether the silk has somehow been harmed by being stored for so long, meaning the stiffness is now a characteristic of the silk and won't go away. any ideas?? i've only ever purchased pochettes at the boutique, and they've been quite soft when i buy them...no starchy feel. but perhaps this is a trait of older H scarves?? TIA!!
