Cashmere wool is one of the more luxurious winter fabrics. Soft, strong and light, the comfortable texture lends itself well to a variety of cold-weather staples like sweaters, hats and glove linings. We prefer a nice cashmere scarf over acrylic or lambswool—they don't itch, they keep us warm, and they add a touch of class and indulgence to any outfit. Herewith, some of our favorites in a range of prices:
John W. Nordstrom, $73.90
Currently 20% off, these solid scarves from Nordstrom fit the bill in more ways than one.
A feather-weight style made in Scotland from super soft wool with a subtle tonal grey pattern.
Salvatore Ferragamo, $550
Details like yellow tipping, gray stripes and fringed ends add a collegiate feel to this lightweight but warm muffler.
Available in a variety of solid colors, J.Crew's fringed scarves are well-made and reasonably priced for Italian cashmere.
Alexander Olch, $275
Made in New York from Italian cashmere, this reversible style is blue plaid on one side and a solid blue on the other.
