    1. A tartan blanket scarf to wrap yourself in whenever the elements are at their most brutal but you still want to look cute.,

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this scarf. Colors are lovely. It's very soft. And it's huge. We had supper out and they had the AC on and I was freezing; I realized, duh, it's a BLANKET scarf. So I took it off, unfolded it, and wrapped it around my shoulders and arms and was impressed at how much coverage I got from it. Already hunting for another color." —Emily LePinnet

Since they aren’t heavy on my face, I don’t get those red marks on the sides of my nose. Also, love the idea of being able to replace them if they were to break.

Definitely pick one up." —B-Private

Also, you can transform it into a shawl if you'd like as well. The color was absolutely beautiful and exactly like the picture. The material is very soft! I used it as a neck pillow many times and an eye cover for when it was too bright and I was trying to get some rest. And soooooo warm and comfy! 10/10 great purchase! (For reference, I backpacked through Canada for a little over a week and this scarf was absolutely great in keeping my comfort and warmth levels elevated)." —Gaby

    Promising review: "I bought two last season and wore them almost every day. Bought two more this season! They are a perfect size to wrap around my neck on those cold weather days, and they are not bulky so they look cute, too! Keeping my neck warm is a game changer on a cold day!" —Shawn M
