This scarf is like the Double Crème Brie of cheeses. It has a rich, creamy look and feel to it. It's a classic winter white scarf, but really it's much more modern and distinct, with a very sophisticated edge.
It also has a softness (cashmere and merino wool) that directly contradicts its strong and unique personality. Bold, threaded diamond cables are an intriguing and very eye-catching design running the length of this scarf.
Simple braided cable edges border the center design for a touch of refinement.
This is definitely a scarf for sophisticated knitting palates! A great unisex gift.
