I created this sustainable scarf post years ago, and I’m finally making some updates. It’s September, and I’m so ready for fall - I’m sure you can relate!

This post is mostly made up of scarves and wraps for fall/winter time, but there are a few you can easily wear all year long. Cotton is always in season, and even some summer nights can feel a little chilly so it’s a perfect fabric during that time of year. There are a couple made from cashmere, which is obviously a good choice for winter and fall. It’s a natural fiber that keeps you so warm and cozy - and if you really need to keep warm, the mantles are amazing!

This nuno {fabric} felting is an art of fusion, and is all done by hand.
