Ok, loved my leopard print eBay scarf. Wore for weeks without seeing a 'twin'.

At a beautiful family hotel in Scottish highlands where I have seen 4 mums wearing since yesterday. All the children are boden clad, mums are decked out in Breton tops & mulberry bags. Feel like I am at a mumsnet conference.

My lovely scarf is now banished to the back of the wardrobe.

I saw a woman with no kids with it on the other day. I had then sense not to buy it though when I saw how many were! grin wink

Which family hotel in the highlands? I may have been one you spotted?

I wore mine yesterday but I didn't see any another ones.

Not sure how long mine will last, DS has taken a shine to it, he was wearing it as a "jungley cape". hmmgrin

I wear mine with pride and haven't spotted any others (except at the towers, obvs)

I haven't seen anyone else with one either, well except my mum who I bought one forgrin

Ooh how exciting.

One of the reasons I didn't look at the thread was because there is no ebay where I am. I did however see very similar pasmina scarfs in grey (much lovelier IMHO!) in a local market and bought them for my friends 2 Christmas's ago.

Please tell me they will now think I am super stylish and ahead of the game grin

Huh. Not here it's not - it's been a month and it hasn't arrived yet sad. Waiting to hear back from seller.

I bet you're at Crieff Hydro - last time I was there, it was full of people who looked like they'd be MNers!

I wore mine at the Fairmont Hotel, St Andrews - last weekend. Was child free wink

Doyouthinktheysaurus Sat 22-Oct-11 15:52:12

I haven't seen any round my way yet.....well, only me!

Long may it last.

PrinceRogersNelson Sat 22-Oct-11 16:08:56

I've seen 2 mums with it on this week.

BuildersTea Sat 22-Oct-11 16:10:22

I haven't come across them before. I've been intrigued by the constant references to it on here but being new, missed the big thread. Have just bought one in brown smile

Germaine Greer was wearing it on tv the other night.
