I have knitted many llama scarves that I have spun myself and then knitted, however I keep forgetting to wear them -they are extremely warm and I must remember tomorrow when I walk the dogs and it is 3°C, to wear a scarf.
Living in the Tropics,I do not have what I can call a real Winter any more,but when I was in Melbourne,I could not live without my scarves!!! I used to spin fleece for a hobby,and I would also dye this wool with natural colours derived from plants and flowers.Then I would knit lovely scarves,not just for myself,but also as gifts for loved ones!! They were so useful and cuddly-warm too!! I also had a huge collection of very old and beautiful silk scarves which where ideal for the not o cold days,and I actually still have many of these! I still like a lightweight scarf as a fashion accessory,but definitely not used for warmth!
Have quite a collection, in size, colours & patterns!
I'll buy a scarf to match one outfit, if it has the exact colours of said outfit.
In Summer, I'll tie them to my hand/tote bag handle! They look very colourful & lift my mood!
My neck gets cold easily, so they've a practical use for me as well!
ALWAYS take one to the Theatre, as aircon chill hits me on the neck, no matter where I'm seated!
My fave is my 'traditionally' patterned Burberry, bought at a department store, in the Ginza, Tokyo. It's just SO cosy & warm. And matches many outfits!
I sure do. I prefer soft cotton or similar material scarfs rather than woolen, as I have sensitive skin. My favourite scarf is one like this: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/hot-sale-lady-and-men-print-pattern-skull-scarf-wholesale-15pcs-lot-with-mix-colour-grey/497451819.html?s=p I wear it all the time!
I have always worn them, and love Italian silk's the best.
I must have a collection of scarf's, and still always
look for them when I can.
Now, I am into the more wider ones, bright colours are me.
Don't like anything drab, has to have a kick-to-it!..something
that makes a 'statement' no less. :)
I have several beautiful scarves and stoles which I never use. Can't stand wearing anything high necked or round my neck so they just languish in a drawer. It's a pity because my son has bought me several from various exotic locations he has visited round the world. However, they are nice to look at and most of them can be used as wraps on cool evenings.
Yes, I love wearing woollen scarves, but because i wear leggings & thermal wear in winter under my brightly patterned cotton dresses with coats, they need to be plain colours to match the dress! When we visit our daughter in Melbourne, she’d rather I wear slacks, jumpers & a coat, saying, I look silly wearing my dresses in winter. I just don’’t like wearing boring looking cloths in winter! Perhaps I need plain coloured scarves to match the dresses, or patterned scarves to match the winter cloths she’d like me to wear, because it’s so cold in Melbourne! You people out there are very clever to make your own scarves!
I have a lovely selection of pashmino scarves which I only wear for decoration as I feel the heat, even in winter, and some silk scarves mum had bought me and a colourful one a co-worker brought me back from one of his overseas trips. It was trendy many years ago when I was working in the City to tie one to one's handbag.
