I had shopped in department stores for a replacement for my old lightweight wool scarf, but the choices were disappointing. Either they were way-overpriced synthetic yarns or else scratchy things with awful weaves. I'm no fashion snob, and I'm not connoisseur of fancy fabrics, but I like a comfortable scarf.
I ordered this State Cashmere scarf based on reviews and price, and I was not disappointed! It's super-soft, very warm, and yet it's light enough that I can comfortably let it hang around my neck if I'm not in the mood to ditch my coat. It's also a lot longer than my last scarf, so I have more options about how to wrap it. It's a great scarf for a half what you'd pay in a store.
