I recently had the opportunity to test a Bioscarf. Yes, it’s a scarf, and everyone knows I like scarves. I’ve worn them all my life. I used to love alpaca wool scarves and find their comfort impeccable.

But then, I was given a Polartec scarf, a polyester product that strives to duplicate wool without the itching or scratching.

I have come to prefer my Polartec scarves, which are also easy to clean and dry.

I like long scarves too, but not the very long scarves that get in the way. I cannot forget the story of the famous dancer, Isadora Duncan: She loved very, very long silk scarves, and she enjoyed wearing them in her convertible. She was 50 years old at the time she was driving in September 1927 in Nice, France, and her enormously long scarf got caught in the rear wheel and axle of her car. It was a ghastly accident and she was strangled to death. (When you read about Duncan, you’d think her great legacy is that she had a famous dancing career, but the first thing you read about is that she was strangled to death by her own scarf.) I don’t drive a convertible, and I cannot imagine wearing a scarf that must have been 10 or 12 feet long. In addition, the Bioscarf is actually good for you—not a potential hazard.
