The Lapuan Kankurit Linen / Grey Usva Scarf is the epitome of casual sophistication. Lapuan Kankurit is the only Finnish weaving mill whose textiles have met the "Masters of Linen" requirements, and the high quality of this linen scarf is easy to see and feel. An eco-friendly material, linen requires no irrigation other than natural rain, so you'll feel good in more ways than one when you wear this fashionable accessory. Washed and softened, it won't irritate your skin and will feel soft against your neck. Wrap it around numerous times if it's chilly, or tie it in a simple knot to make a style statement; either way, you'll love the look and feel.
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
Perfect for travel. Keeps the horrid A/C at bay in stores, office, and airplanes. Very stylish - something that men admire (and want!) as much as women I meet. Washes beautifully. I love this item, and work to ensure I don't quickly give it away (and buy another) because I might go broke! Really recommend this item for a woman or a man who likes the style and functionality of a wonderfully woven linen item. Buy with confidence.
ProsDrapes beautifully. Classic color. Be careful - people will want it right off your neck! Love this scarf.

My niece loves it!
I bought this linen scarf as a gift for my niece and it's quickly become one of her favorite accessories. She's taken to wearing it frequently as a fashion item. The lightweight linen weave is as fine as silk. Since she lives in Southern California, a wool scarf would be inappropriate for most of the year, but the fine linen can be worn year-round. Buying gifts for other people can sometimes go wrong, but I think I hit the jackpot with this scarf.
