    I am looking for a large square travel scarf, that I can wear on an airplane that will keep me warm. I would also like to be able to wear it at as a fashion scarf on other occasions. I am allergic to wool, so a high wool content might be an issue.

    I recently purchased a red leopard Alexander McQueen scarf that is a cashmere silk blend, on sale for $299 from SaksOff5th and I am waiting for it to arrive.

    Any other recommendations would be appreciated in case this scarf does not work out. Thanks.
     
  2. Have you look up icebreaker brand and their official www.icebreaker.com

    Its material of wool different from other wool that doesnt make you itch at all

    Also its incredible warm
     
  3. interesting too))
     
  4. A Hermes cashmere scarf is a must! They are made of cashmere and silk, come in beautiful patterns, and are fashionable and warm. I wear one when I travel and use it as wrap to keep my shoulders warm, as a fashion accessory to dress up and as a throw to cover my legs. They are pricey but worth the investment.
     
  5. second this, they're very versatile and a great investment.

    I agree with suggestions of an Hermes CSGM.
    I would also like to provide an alternative. I bought a ruana from Brooks Brothers three years ago and it has come in handy on many occasions. I love to bring it on a plane bc it's thicker and more durable than an H shawl. It's also handy to have with you while visiting a warmer destination. Often evenings can be cooler, so having something light weight to drape over your shoulders is nice to have with you. It can be dressed up or dressed down. The cashmere is very soft (it feels wonderful against my sensitive skin) and the cut is fabulous! Mine has held up to quite a lot of use and still looks brand new.

    They are on sale currently and I highly recommend checking them out. I paid full price for mine and would not hesitate to purchase it again. I bring it on every vacation or trip.

    I also like to wear it like this if the weather turns suddenly colder than expectedly.

  7. definitely agree with h csgm they are 140cm x 140cm so its large enough for airplane usage
    the deisgn and colors are simply wonderful
     
  8. Check out the Alicia Adams alpaca at My habit. But hurry, they are closing tomorrow! I just received mine 1/2 hour ago and it is gorgeous and so soft!!!
     
  9. Which one do you get? Do share! I need one for incoming travel. :smile:
     

  10. Here is the link to the colors they have left. They no longer have the one I got. The color was sand. I'll post a picture below. Let me know if you get one. Best thing it's soft, warm and hypoallergenic!

  11. I travel frequently for work, and I would never use a nice Hermes shawl that I couldn't wash, knowing it was covered in who knows how many airplane germs.
    I have a Samantha Brown Loop shawl I bought from travel smith and it's super comfortable and most importantly machine washable!

  12. I machine wash my cashmere shawls. ( with care using in a net bag) good quality, pure cashmere washes well in low temperatures and dried flat. I use some aromatherapy be oils on my shawls, a dab of pure lavender or lemon & tea tree is good to purify the air when we travel. Just make sure you buy proper aromatherapy oils from a specialist rather than the diluted versions. Tieserand abd fragrant earth are two good brands that sping to mind.
     
  13. Do you put the oil directly on the fabric of your shawls? Does it cause any oil stains?
     
  14. Been living in this shawl since getting it on a plane earlier this year

    Light, washable & keeps on getting better, also almost indestructible. Mine cost less from the airline catalogue so you can probably do better somewhere.

    Best thing it's cheap so if it gets damaged or lost is easy to replace, something I'm starting to appreciate when travelling.
