Wool Scarves – Five Plus one

Five Plus One is our weekly series of buyer’s guides. We pick a specific category and dig up five great options along with one that’s a little outside the norm.

Whether you’re trudging through the snow in your warmest down jacket or just need to keep your neck a little bit warmer in your favorite sweater, you can’t go wrong with a wool scarf to cover your neck, face, or even a large portion of your whole dome. While the options are nearly endless, we’ve done our best to track down a varied selection of some of our favorite high-quality options on the market.

As usual with Five Plus One, there are five safe bet products to suit a variety of readers, and a wild card thrown in for those looking for something slightly out of left field.

1) Corridor: Alpaca Fringe Scarf

Wool-Mufflers---Five-Plus-one 1) Corridor: Alpaca Fringe Scarf

Corridor‘s Alpaca Fringe Scarf has an almost bubbly texture to the knit, which works well with the 60%/30%/10% alpaca/merino wool/polyamide blend of the yarn. Available in two neutral colorways, including the gorgeous rust color pictured above, this fringed scarf is easy to work into nearly any wardrobe, and Corridor’s matching beanie selection makes this prospect all the more enticing.

Available for $145 from Corridor.

2) Allevol x Inverallan: Wool/Mohair Scarf in Oatmeal


Allevol makes some great garments, but their team-ups with legendary Scottish knitwear maker Inverallan have opened the doors to some phenomenal new products. This Wool/Mohair Scarf features the same cableknit patterns you see on Inverallan’s sweaters, and utilizes a 70%/30% wool/mohair blend.

Available for $96 ($86.40 for Heddels+ members) from Clutch Cafe

3) Engineered Garments: Knit Scarf


My love of knitwear is primarily due its texture, which has almost endless potential when different knitting patterns are deployed. This is something Engineered Garments has focused in on in their latest Knit Scarf. Featuring a diagonal weave and multiple patterns throughout, this 100% wool scarf is finished with an asymmetric, parallelogram hemline.

Available for $84 from Glasswing.

4) Norse Projects: Lambswool Scarf


No list of scarves would be complete without at least one featuring a tartan or check pattern, and this time around the honor goes to Norse Projects‘ Lambswool Scarf. Made in the UK from 100% merino lambswool, this scarf is of the finer, soft-and-not-scratchy variety, which is just as important a category as the ultra-insulating, scratchy wool numbers. Featuring a blue/off-white/beige pattern, this scarf is incredibly easy to match with a ton of different outfits, being cozy and soft all the while.

Available for $72 from Lost and Found.

5) Upstate Stock: Ragg Wool Scarf


Upstate Stock‘s Ragg Wool Scarf is constructed from a 50%/50% wool/acrylic blend, which aims to offer the warmth and wicking ability of wool with the added durability of synthetics. This made-in-the-USA scarf is available in a ton of different colors, and the multi-colored, neppy appearance of the fabric is present (in varying degrees) in all of them.

Available for $75 from Upstate Stock.

Plus One – Kapital: Fulling Wool Scarf GLITTER OHWASHI – Black


Kapital is a very divisive brand, and while their styles aren’t appreciated by all, I hope everyone can see the beauty of their Fulling Wool Scarf Glitter Ohwashi. Made in Japan of 100% wool and featuring a black backdrop with beautiful feathers knitted with various shades of white, this scarf is a real stunner. It’s pricey, it’s big, and it’s not for everyone, but there is someone this scarf is perfect for — and they’ll treasure it always.

Available for $321 from Blue in Green.
