Arrived quickly, good postage rates too. Product is absolutely divine! Haven't used it as yet, still gazing at it daily. It's much richer coloured than the picture suggests, sort of a heavy rich gold clotted cream shade, perfect for an antique shawl. I will definately be a returning customer, most impressed
