It has been decided that we need a new Mumsnet Scarf

In order to stop hijacking stormforce10's brilliant thread, in which she gave another TerribleCuntMum a proper bollocking (go, stormforce!!! - and link here for anyone who wants to cheer her on), I am starting this one.

The old Mumsnet Scarf, judging by responses posted to a picture, is just not serving its purpose any more.

Here are a few alternate options.

Please add yours.

Skull scarf with attitude

Gorgeous white and grey butterfly scarf - my personal favourite

More butterfly options, with international shipping for those of us not in UK

Not so great, but worth mentioning nonetheless

The Original Scarf, which looks great on the wearer, but of course we don't all look like that

I like the white stuff one and also the skull one.

I thought we did have an updated MN scarf though? There was a thread last year about the zebra scarf.

Jacksmania Sat 09-Feb-13 20:09:45

Missed that one - link please?

This is the Zebra scarf , isn't it? I bought it green - had tons of compliments. I try and not let on it was dirt cheap on eBay, but usually fail. smile

Jacksmania Sat 09-Feb-13 20:16:45

Oh, I quite like that!

Glossynotflossy Sat 09-Feb-13 20:22:39

No butterflies
can we have something a bit edgy?

GlaikitFizzog Sat 09-Feb-13 20:26:17

Humph, that's my not so great butterfly scarf, it is actually nice IRL, and I get loads of compliments too! <sulking>

I already own a zebra one & a gorgeous accessorize circle scarf butterfly one (thanks mum).

I could use an excuse to buy another. I only own about 300 scarves to go with my 500 cardigans. Good for hiding chins & back fat.

Some lovely ones here

I have three of the MN ones.

I need some new ones.

GwendolineMaryLacey Sat 09-Feb-13 20:34:45

I bought the original MN scarf in purple and thought it was bloody horrible.

EverythingslookingRosie Sat 09-Feb-13 20:35:34

I love that 'not so great' scarf Glaikitfizzog in fact I will probably buy one now to hide my chins and back fat grin

Skull scarf wins my vote

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 09-Feb-13 20:40:24

I don't like any of them, sorry. And I don't want a scarf that everybody is going to be wearing, either tbh. So let's find LOTS of scarves, so people can all have a different one!

But I do like the look of:


watches Love this print but depends on fabric

Might well go and buy this tomorrow if it's nice irl

love this too

Jacksmania Sat 09-Feb-13 20:42:49

Oh shit Glaikit - I'm sorry, really, that was rude of me blush

<slaps self>

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 09-Feb-13 20:43:45


love this too

landofsoapandglory Sat 09-Feb-13 20:45:19

Glaikit I've got one too!

Jacksmania Sat 09-Feb-13 20:45:43

Um. Maybe I'm being stupid, but if we have lots of different scarves which I heartily approve in principle, I love scarves and have a few a lot actually, then how will we know which is The Mumsnet Scarf?

Or is it a defining feature of a Mumsnetter that she wears a long floaty scarf?
felling dim

as well as rude blush

BabyRoger Sat 09-Feb-13 20:48:03

I like the original!

Hope nothing floral is decided on!! Needs to be edgy not WI! (in my humble opinion!)

WitchOfEndor Sat 09-Feb-13 20:48:52

Not fond of skull motifs but marking my place for possible new scarf splurges!

notjustamummythankyou Sat 09-Feb-13 20:51:04

Pretty skulls anyone?

iMe Sat 09-Feb-13 20:51:31

I have the White Stuff one smile Haven't worn it yet though so can't say if it's got any compliments.
Love all the other butterfly links.
Didn't look at the skull one as I hate skulls. (No offence to anyone who likes them!)
Love all Remus' links.
<Faints at the price of the Atterley Road scarves>

notjustamummythankyou Sat 09-Feb-13 20:51:55

Ok, babyroger doesn't like flowers, and witch doesn't like skulls.

I'll get my coat ...

Nagoo Sat 09-Feb-13 20:52:12

placemarking, I like the zebra one in yellow a lot but it's not payday yet...

landofsoapandglory Sat 09-Feb-13 20:57:49

Nagoo, if you do a search for "yellow zebra print scarf" on eBay, some come up as cheap as £3.99 incase you do want to buy one when pay does come. I have 3 from last year and know I didn't pay £7.99 for them.
