Homespun Glory, For Your Neck

Posted on January 14, 2014

If there was one standout trend this winter, it was the infinity scarf. The Bora scarf is one such scarf that's a relaxed way to dress up an outfit in the cold, or be worn loosely when it’s warmer out. The unique medium of Alpaca fur handles both flawlessly.


       Alpaca is a rare fiber that the Huffington Post describes as “stronger than mohair, finer than cashmere, smoother than silk, softer than cotton, warmer than goose down, and better-breathing than thermal knits.”

       Whoa. You've heard of super fruits, but super furs?

(Apparently alpaca fur starts out pretty happy too.)


       The fur used for the scarves from Aria Handmade comes from Asheville, North Carolina and is woven by designer Nestor Pineda. The company focuses on using recycled and all natural products: both applicable definitions for the Bora scarf in a way. 

        These scarves were created out of the necessity for something stylishly warm during a severe winter in New York City. So the style that can be worn easily in Autumn and Spring even stands up to a frigid winter.
