FRAAS Fairisle Infinity Scarf

Happy Tuesday (again)!

Wow, two posts in one day? I am on a roll, haha!
I wore my new scarf from the FRAAS Fall 2012 Collection today, and I am just so excited about it that I have to share it with you guys! :)

I reviewed a scarf from FRAAS before, but just in case you guys have forgotten about it, here is a little something about FRAAS:


Scarf producer V. Fraas celebrates more than 130 years in business. Ever since its foundation in 1880 by Valentin Fraas, the world leader for mufflers and shawls has thrived and advanced under the control of his descendants -- a remarkable feat in this transitory world. It is a forward looking company that continues to expand at a rapid pace... From its bases in New York, Paris, London, Wüstenselblitz, Toronto, and Shanghai, V. Fraas' design team travel to major shows and forecasting seminars throughout the globe to identify new trends and develop products that are perfectly attuned to fashion and customer demand.


I've been wanting to get an infinity scarf, but for some odd reason I never seem to get around to buying one. 

I can't even describe how excited I was when I was asked to review this particular scarf for you guys -- beyond excited! And I was even more excited to wake up to chilly weather this morning, haha! ;)


This is my first ever infinity scarf and I am totally in love with it!
It's so beautiful, the color combination is perfect (and it goes so well with my favorite color, yellow, as seen below, haha!), and it's so soft!

More than 100 new FRAAS brand styles are debuting in the upcoming season--many in multiple color way options. Three on-target and very elegant palettes and themes are apparent--Woodland Guardians, Mineral Explosion, and Decadent Traveler. Neutrals, jewel tones, and accent pop colors provide savvy consumers with the right styling and best shades to work with existing and new wardrobes.

The Fairisle Infinity Scarf is comprised of acrylic, nylon, and a bit of wool. It is soft and extremely lightweight which makes it a great item for transitioning from season to season. It is also ideal for travel and almost any location and climate. It loops easily and requires no tying which is one of the genius things about an infinity scarf.

A peek at today's outfit...

Not only will it dress up and function with outerwear, it will look great with a sweater, dress, or blouse, and as an accent accessory.

As I mentioned above, I was so excited to wake up to cold weather this morning because it meant I can finally wear my Fairisle Infinity Scarf! I wore mine with a mustard yellow shirt (I love the bright colors!), jeans, leather jacket, and boots. The sun came up as the day went on, but it didn't matter to me, I didn't take my scarf off at all, haha! ;)

I really love this scarf and this is definitely my new favorite!


Available colors: Camel/Ivory, Rose/Petal, Black/Gray, and Navy/Turquoise.
Price: $40

FRAAS scarves can be found at specialty stores throughout the country. You may also order them directly from the company by calling 212-575-0191. Select styles are also available at www.fraas.com and www.amazon.com.

  15. Very pretty scarf. I purchased a couple infinity scarves last winter and got quite a lot of use from them. I really adore the camel/ivory color scarf. For some reason I always have a huge love for camel each Fall.
