There’ve been a few cooler days in the last week or so, just that hint of autumn around the corner…I love it. Fall is my favourite season. Luckily the day I shot these photos was a cool day – I was wearing a black wool sweater and a cashmere scarf! I can’t wait until I can actually wear this scarf out for warmth. And hoo boy, you’d better bet I’ll be wearing this scarf a LOT. I hope this gets you excited for fall too!
The only word for this scarf is luscious! Soft, silky, luxurious laceweight cashmere gives an ethereal halo to this light and cozy fabric. If cashmere isn’t in your budget, find the softest merino or alpaca laceweight you can!
Chic oversized cables alternate sides to produce a reversible fabric and provide maximum punch for minimal effort! The fabric scrunches and drapes in fantastic ways. It’s the scarf you’ll keep reaching for over and over.
