National Scarf Day

National Scarf Day

National Scarf DayNational Scarf Day was founded by Echo New York, a widely known scarf brand, on September 27, 2018, in honor of the beauty and power of scarves. Over the years, Echo flourished as a brand and has successfully made a name for itself in the industry of fashion by creating gorgeous, intricately designed scarves. But where did it all begin?

The founders of Echo, Edgar and Therese Hymann, actually began the business on their wedding day. When they went to get their marriage license at City Hall, they decided to incorporate their business while they were there. It didn’t take long for them to set up shop in the heart of New York, where the brand blossomed and won over New Yorkers with their vibrant, beautifully made scarves.

So, if you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to wear your favorite scarf or go shopping for a new one, you’re in luck! It’s National Scarf Day, and it’s time to flaunt the most fashionable scarf that you can find. Don’t forget to get one for your pet, too!


Types of Scarf Fabric and When to Wear Them

1. Silk

Silk scarves are one of the most popular fashion accessories because of how timeless they are. They can instantly add a touch of class and elegance to almost any outfit. Whether you’re going to a fancy dinner or a casual lunch date, silk scarves are a perfect choice!

2. Wool

The wool comes from the fleece of sheep and other woolly animals, so wool scarves are great for keeping yourself warm during colder seasons.

3. Satin

Satin scarves are soft, glossy, lightweight, and flowy. If you’re looking for a scarf to use as a headwrap or a headband, then definitely go for satin. Their texture allows for less friction between your hair and the scarf, so they’re less likely to cause hair breakage.

4. Linen

Linen scarves are known for their incredible ability to conduct heat, as well as their breathability. So, if you want a scarf that can keep you cool and moisture-free even in unbearable heat, pick one that’s made from linen.

5. Cotton

Just like linen, cotton is also a good conductor of heat and can help keep you cool during warmer seasons. Plus, they’re durable and easy to clean.


Pets Can Wear Scarves, Too!

When you pick out a scarf for yourself, don’t forget to get one for your pet, too! Believe it or not, but scarves are more than just accessories and they have various uses that can benefit both you and your dog. Here are a few ways you can use scarves:

1. Catch loose pet hair

If your pet sheds a lot of hair or if you have an allergy, putting a scarf on your pet can help catch loose hair and prevent them from flying all over the place.

2. Keep your pet warm

Making your pet wear a scarf during colder seasons can help keep them warm. Although pet sweaters and shirts make good options, too, they may actually provide too much warmth for some animals. If your pet already has a lot of hair but still needs a little something to make them feel just the right amount of heat, a scarf is the best choice!

3. Keep your pet cool

Scarves aren’t only useful when it’s cold, they can also be used to keep your pet cool when it’s too hot. Simply soak your pet’s scarf in cold water and let them wear it. You can re-soak it when necessary. It’ll help regulate their body temperature and prevent heat strokes.

4. Reduce anxiety and stress

There are plenty of events that can trigger anxiety and stress in animals, such as fireworks, thunderstorms, and long car rides. One way to help your pet is to put a few drops of pet-safe calming essential oils, such as lavender, chamomile, or frankincense, onto your pet’s scarf.
