Wool vs. Cashmere
You’ll see many options when it comes to scarf fabrication. But if you’re buying for true winter, you’ll want to focus on natural fibers: wool and cashmere.
These two fibers are found in many winter scarves because not only are they comfortable to wear but they’re natural- so they’re not trapping heat and will breath while you wear.

A cashmere scarf that I recommend: Anderson & Sheppard Ribbed Cashmere Scarf
***Both of these are unisex
