A collection of great scarves means you can easily change your look, accessorise your outfit and add an extra layer of warmth as the weather changes. A silk scarf feels luxuriously soft against the skin while a wool blend will keep out a chill whether it's a summers evening or a cold winter day.
If you have children a scarf can become a blanket, a makeshift sunhat, a picnic rug and a spare muslin all in the space of a short trip to the park. Not to mention the possibilities for imaginative play.
We love our range of hemp, pure linen, cotton wool and silk scarves. They make an ideal gift and a great treat for yourself whatever the occasion. The hemp scarves from Thought clothing come in a range of gorgeous colours perfect for summer. They are easy to tie in a wide variety of ways and could even be used over a bikini in warmer climates.
Hemp is a super sustainable fabric that is gentle on the environment and super soft on the skin. Itâ€™s grown without a single pesticide making it a very planet-friendly alternative to cotton and requires minimal water making it a great plant to grow in regions that suffer drought. Plus itâ€™s hypoallergenic, thermoregulating and UV resistant, meaning these scarves really are the best accessory youâ€™ll buy this summer.
We also stock a great range of Thought socks, tights and underwear made from bamboo viscose (another wonder fabric) and organic cotton. The gift sets are beautifully packaged and would be a wonderful alternative gift for fatherâ€™s day and great Christmas gifts.
When it comes to keeping warm wool is one of the best natural fibres going. If you need more winter hats the woolen cable knit bobble hat with pompom and matching mittens are, stylish, cosy and fairly traded, meaning the knitters and the environment are getting a good deal.
And we love the knitted animal hats. Fleece lined for extra warmth the penguin and owl knit hats are the perfect winter companions, and who wouldnâ€™t want a little pink piggy to keep their little oneâ€™s head warm. The long tassels are ideal for tieing under chins to help keep hats on and ears cosy, a great next step from a baby hat.
And if mum isnâ€™t quite up for being a penguin the knitted hats with detachable brooches are stylish and practical. The cute knitted brooch can be worn on the hat or used to accessories a coat or jumper. We love the autumn colours and the fact that all the materials including the dyes are 100% natural. Plus the knitting pattern has some great ribbing and cable detail.
The company also have great ethical credentials. They employ nearly 400 artisans who use traditional techniques and materials to make beautiful knitted and felt products. They provide health insurance, donate money to the local community and even pay for children to go to school. This is sustainable fashion on so many levels and we love it.
And who wouldnâ€™t want to kick of their shoes at the end of the day and snuggle up in a pair of cosy rainbow house socks? These hand knitted socks are perfect for those stolen moments with a soothing cup of herbal tea. Glancing down at your feet is bound to put a smile on your face when they are this well dressed.
