When winter comes along, you are often worried if that means you have to put away your silk scarves until spring. You may have thought that it is too cold in the winter to wear a fashionable silk scarf.
It turns out that is not true, as it is not the material the scarf is made of that keeps your neck warm.

One of the reasons why people resist the idea of wearing a silk scarf in the winter may be that silk scarves are often though of as a summer/spring time accessories. Silk is a light material, and wearing a silk scarf in the summer does not cause your neck to overheat. So can a silk scarf keep you warm in the winter?
It can, and here is how.

When you put on that nice, big, comfy winter scarf around your neck, it's little bristles tickling your skin, it is not actually the wool or any other of those cozy scarf materials that warms your throat, or even keeps your neck warm.
What wearing a scarf does do is keep the air around your neck where it is. Your body warms the air around your neck and a good winter scarf keeps the air there, keeping your neck warm.

As we said, it is not the material of the winter scarf you wear that keeps you warm, but the air that the scarf holds. Still, the material the scarf is made of is important.
It is not necessarily the material that is thickest and fluffiest that keeps the cold at bay. Rather, it is the fabric that keeps back air the best that works as a winter scarf material. Fabrics such as cashmere, fleece, wool, and silk.
