I purchased this product as a fun way to easily identify the group that was travelling together to NYC to see a Broadway play and celebrate my sister's 70th birthday. I gave it one star because I could not write a review without clicking on at least one. This lei was pretty to look at, but it was impossible to wear. It was so "itchy" that every woman took it off and wrapped it around their purse straps instead. The itchy lei also "shed" like crazy. Everyone's apparel and purses, the entire bus I rented, and the restaurant where we dined - was covered in a mess of itchy blue threads.
