OK I am on the brink of buying one in the asos sale just because of mumsnet
i bought havianas on the strength of mumsnet and was thrilled with them
So, what is so good about these scarves? should I buy some for next xmas pressies, a couple of friends love their scarves

Pretty design
Good quality
Standout

Yeah I don't really get it with these scarves and I'm a massive scarf fan. All my scarves are stand out to me but most cost around £8 each from supermarkets, eBay etc - I maybe need to experience one to get the hype grin

I have been wondering the same thing grin

The only ones worth getting are the wool mix ones that rrp at £79.
They're warm light and huge unlike most High street ones

DrNick Mon 17-Feb-14 00:38:40

As Warm as a knitted type one

I love mine because they are huge. It's the reason I like Warehouse scarves (although they aren't as big.)

What DrNick said - the cotton ones aren't that special, the wool / silk blend ones are gorgeous (soft, warm, stylish blankies grin )...

Cherrypie32 Mon 17-Feb-14 07:23:41

Ok, that clears that up then thanks. I doubt I'll ever spend such money on a scarf but if I did I'd know what to look for grin

Look out at TK Maxx as they are often founf in there. I got a silk/modal mix one for less than thirty pound

Yy to Dr Nick and whereisshe the wool/silk blend ones are lovely. The cotton ones not to great. My cotton one is quite rough and a lot smaller than my wool/silk one and I hardly wear it.

DrNick Mon 17-Feb-14 07:51:27

Agree. Tk maxx. But infrequently

Allthingsprettyreturns Mon 17-Feb-14 08:12:14

If they are in TK then there will probably be a thread on here for all the BS lovers

I agree with everyone, the wool mix ones are simply lush. They look and feel amazing. The cotton ones are just run of the mill scarfs, nothing special really. In terms of buying scarfs now to give as gifts for Christmas, how can you ensure that they won't end up smelling? I always worry about this. Sometimes you put something away and a few months later the items have the smell of your house or worse still, a musty smell. Quite often you can't even tell but it will be obvious to the person you give it to.

scarves scarves

you are making my red pen twitch

DrNick Mon 17-Feb-14 08:21:35

i gave two as xmas presents - the wool ones with hearts on. SO wanted to keep them,
they came in plastic. Dunno if they smelled, kept them in a drawer

lol adn I LOVE YOU FOR IT

echarpe

I love mine. Long, and keeps me warm. All the others I've bought previously seem flimsy and small now.

I've got the wool silk mix too - should have said.

Was looking at cotton for a summer scarf - is it not worth it?

joliejolie Mon 17-Feb-14 09:05:29

The prints are cute and you can often find them on sale for a bargain. Cotton are okay, but good quality so better than most high street shops if you get a good deal. I have several colours and patterns that I've collected over the years. The wool blend are amazing and huge! I recently bought a 100% wool scarf in almost the same size from another brand and it was so much thinner than my cosy Becksondergaard wool/silk mix.

Apatite1 Mon 17-Feb-14 09:11:37

Love the silk/wool ones, I bought six of them and worn them all winter. I won't be bothering with the cotton ones.

DrNick Mon 17-Feb-14 09:13:59

They do handbags and purses too which look good.

joliejolie Mon 17-Feb-14 09:30:08

I have an eel skin granny purse that my friends all love and have bought for themselves. Also have an amazing silver leather zip purse that I bought for 80% off in the sales. It's quite a cool brand in Denmark.

I got a gorgeous silk/wool mix one in a green/black which was a cobwebby design for my MIL for her birthday. Down to about �25 on asos. I wanted to keep it for myself, but I did part with it. it was very lightweight, but ever so warm, and plumpable.

DrNick Mon 17-Feb-14 13:21:04

Yes i got that too - tie dye?

Allthingsprettyreturns Mon 17-Feb-14 20:58:05

Just looked at the mix again of one of my scarves it's a cashmere and modal mix and not modal and silk. I love it.

aoife24 Mon 17-Feb-14 21:13:05

Yes, the wool/silk blend ones are the ones to go for. They're huge, light and have great designs. The cotton ones are ordinary and stars etc don't do much for me.
