JOYS IN THE HOOD:

The Denver Post - - TRAVEL - Wild Man­tle Minky Polyester Fleece Hooded Scarf with draw­string is $99; Al­paca hooded scarf with fleece lin­ing, with or with­out front but­tons, is $295; at wild­man­tle.com.

There is some­thing co­zily co­coon­ish about the chunky hooded scarves from Wild Man­tle. Work­ing mainly with nat­u­rally hy­poal­ler­genic Peru­vian Al­paca and polyester fleece, the small in­de­pen­dent man­u­fac­turer knits th­ese soft, pull-over man­tles to keep your head and neck toasty, in­de­pen­dent of what­ever else you’re wear­ing. When you don’t need or want a head cov­er­ing, the hood can be rolled down or draped like an over­sized cowl scarf, or left hang­ing free for a sporty look, in­doors or out. The most eco­nom­i­cal model is the Minky, made with a dou­ble layer of cud­dly black or navy polyester fleece, with cot­ton draw­strings for ex­tra wind­proof­ing. For the lux­u­ri­ous feel of wool, mi­nus the itch, opt for the slightly stretch­ier Al­paca model, avail­able in ribbed char­coal gray, black or deep red, and lined with Minky polyester fleece. The char­coal gray and black Al­paca mod­els can be or­dered with the ad­di­tional em­bel­lish­ment of three big dec­o­ra­tive but­tons sewn down the neck front. S’mores, any­one?
