When you think “scarf,” you might think something like our Daily Scarf. A nice, wide swath of stockinette with a bit of 1×1 ribbing on the ends, it is quintessential, and also elegant and light, breathable and warm. It appeals to any person, any day!

Knit in our fingering weight Echo Cashmere, the fabric of this scarf is delicate and feather-light. Even folded in half and looped around the neck, it never feels too close or restrictive… Just comfortable and perfectly warm.

Ninety-five percent recycled cashmere, we love that Echo Cashmere gives a second life to beautiful fibers that might otherwise go to waste.

The way this cashmere gets recycled is the mill collects the fibers from the production process of cashmere yarn and sweaters and from recycled sweaters, too. Five percent of the yarn ends up being wool (or sometimes a bit of nylon), which sneaks in there from the recycled sweaters and which means every bit of fiber gets reused.

Made in Italy, Echo Cashmere’s palette of 13 colors brings to mind a classic Italian wardrobe, warm, oat-y neutrals and wintry grays, plus beautiful, rich heathers from the more serious corners of the spectrum.
