Winter calls for cozy textiles like the Lapuan Kankurit Saana Charcoal Scarf. Made in Finland from 100% merino wool, it is warm yet breathable for layering. The wide and lengthy accessory can be worn in a number of ways, and the neutral colorway will coordinate with any ensemble. The charcoal-colored textile is contrasted by grey and orange details along the border for the perfect pop of color and texture. The scarf has raw fringed edges, to keep the look casual yet perfectly pulled together.
Four generations of weavers unite to create the heritage-strong brand of Lapuan Kankurit, and it is now run by Esko Hjelt and his wife Jaana. The family business began as a wool and felt boot factory in 1917 creating quality wool textiles. Today, the same heart and soul goes into Lapuan Kan... More Lapuan Kankurit
Lovely scarf and very soft. Large enough to use as a shawl but also works as a generously-sized scarf too. The beautiful subtleties of the charcoal color are more obvious in person. I would not hesitate to recommend this item.
Soft, generous size, beautiful color.

I have to thank Liz who wrote "A Winter Staple" review. I read her review and immediately ordered this lovely scarf. I was inspired by how she found so many lovely and kind uses for her scarf. Mine is now draped over my breakfast chair and will be perfect for our chilly North Carolina mornings. With family coming in for the holidays, including my ever-youthful 89-year-old mother, I, too, may be finding appreciative knees and shoulders to drape this scarf over. Love that the scarf is woven in Finland. Thanks Liz for the inspiration!

A Winter Staple

While I usually keep this shawl over the back of my favorite chair I often begin my day by putting it around my shoulders and again at night while reading. When guests come - I frequently will lay it across someones appreciative knees. Nothing is as warm or soft as merino wool. I've hand washed mine in cold water and hung to dry several times. It still looks like new.
