Can anyone advise on their favorite places to buy nice big thick soft winter scarves in Zurich, besides Manor, CoopCityStAnahof, Jelmoli, Globus and Main Station's upper floor central market ??


Thanks for any thoughts.

Honestly? Anything handmade will always make you warmer than mass-produced clothing. You may look a tad too hipster but...https://www.etsy.com/market/knitted_scarves So artsy. So original.

Or ask here, there are EF knitters/crochetters around here. Speaking of which, I am rushing my projects for xmas but I know I will be finishing some 30min before the tree is lit. :D

Where?

Do you mean in the stalls between Manor & Globus and by the Singing Xmass Tree?

Or in main station?

I think the ones on Sechseleutenplatz are almost all only food stalls.

Just don't take it off!

They make attaching clips, for skiing gloves :D. I know because I lose gloves the min I buy them. And umbrellas.

But 950fr is a tad...overkill.

To be honest, there's no point buying hand-knitted scarves unless you've personally met the sheep.

Some of these so-called "craftspeople" source their yarn from all kinds of places.

Yes. Our Stitch and Bitch witnessed spinning cat hair.

Perhaps try buying quality rather than quantity and then actually taking care of it?

Besides, why not spoil yourself with cashmere.

My preference is the body hair of Uighur peasants.

Hmm. I have follow up questions.

I found that the hair of Brits discussing Brexit is the finest. Nowhere else will you find so finely split hairs.

So funny, when I started this thread I thought to myself, "Now here's a very simple, straight-forward, innocuous, non-controversial thread topic that no one will start arguing over and everyone will come out unscathed.


.... not that I mind the quote above ..... actually, jokes make the threads more entertaining ..... just laughing at my own delusions.

I like your delusions. Scarves can be so controversial, too. :D

Thanks for any thoughts.

If you are looking for good stuff, then Transa.ch.

It was amazing to shop there before out trip to the Artcic last year. And also on our previous trips. They are knowledgeable, and you'll walk away with what you need, if you go in knowing what you want.

Globus and co. will sell you stuff that is just silly if you want to keep warm.

Some people think the same about watches and frying pans. ;)
