What a pity we live in the tropics. You can't walk about wearing a woolly scarf. The two main reasons being 1. you'ld develop one of those nasty heat-induced itch with 2 .5 minutes. 2. You'dl get stares and silent sniggers if you walk long enough with this contraption. Otherwise this beauty would be around my neck this afternoon. I've chosen instead more sensible fashionable light-weight scarfs.
