How much on average is a silk scarf, or how much is the range of items sold at the farm? It would be nice to know in advance how much money I think I should bring. Thank you
Be careful. when you cross with the boat there are some people who invite you to visit their shop. They sell mostly mercericed cotton scarfs. Of course cheaper then the silk ones on the farm. About USD 20.00 seems to be correct for a silk one on the farm. Discount only if you buy 5 or more. discount 1 USD. Also on the farm the have cheap scarfs. Not wothwile buying. The real silk ones absolutely. Beautyful colors. Next time I buy much more. Before I was home most of them gone to friends who love them.
Get a silk scarf at the farm its the only place you'll get a 100% silk scarf. Other places on the island are most likely scam. Costs around 20 USD.
I think mine was $10 US. it is from the silk farm and totally devine. (It is hanging next to me decorating my room in Thailand) I was basically forced to buy one at the ferry. I refused to pay mor than $7 as they were so rude. (It may not be authentic but it's still gorgeous pink & blue elephants). Buy the cheap ones if you want gifts, they are trying to make a living too. (I just wish they weren't so rude and pushy) there are more expensive ones at the silk farm too.
