Avoca Spool Scarf


Love these 100% lambswool Avoca scarves available online at one of my fave stores (for creating personal wishlists), Terrain. I normally think about Avoca in Duty Free in Shannon Airport where the idea of reupholstering a yet-to-be-sourced vintage armchair in soft and lovely Avoca blankets competes with the idea of me sitting on my existing sofa wolfing down Butlers chocolates. Butlers chocolates are usually two-for-the-price-of-one while Avoca offerings are usually one-for-the-price-of-two, so I usually pad my thighs and wishlist by choosing the chocolate as my traveling companion.

Enough about me and Duty-Free; these Avoca scarves would make a lovely gift for a nice neck on your giftlist. (I hope you buy one so I can feel better about swiping the idea of wrapping scarves on a spool!)

P.s. How cute are these chocolate Christmas treats from Butlers?

There's something about that spool idea - it's ridiculous, yet makes me want to buy one.

It is crafty in every sense of the word. I'm imagining all of our winter scarves rolled onto spools and sitting in a rustic wood bowl by the front door ... and also imagining myself chasing everyone to roll their scarves back onto their spools "for God's sake, I don't ask for much!" ... and then having to do it myself. Sigh. Still, they would be a nice gift-wrapping idea for someone else.
