2. Woolly & Warm Scarf

Nothing beats the classic look and feel of a warm, woolly scarf. Alpaca wool is renowned as one of the softest and warmest materials around. Straight from Bolivia, the Vibrant Season scarf is created in close proximity to where alpacas live and thrive. Similarly, banana fiber, derived from the trunk of the banana tree, is a wonderful alternative to animal wool because of its softness and warmth.  With its lightweight quality, this material is a renewable resource to the artisans of Nepal.
