Eco. Pure. Simple. That’s why I love Earth Creations! I’ve featured them on Notes From Dawn several times. This feature is on the infinity scarf. A perfect accessory for wrapping up on a cool fall day. 
Infinity Scarf
Wear it any number of ways. Loop around once or twice. Pull up into a hood. Style it as a wrap. The wrap is my comfy-cozy style because it keeps the back of my neck and my shoulders warm without any bulk around the neck. It can be fancied up or worn sweat pant casual. Lightweight but warm.
Available from Earth Creations in 8 solid colors.
90% organic cotton/10% lycra jersey. one size 60″by 14″.

Xob Website

Icebox Knitting, maker of Dohm and Xob, is the picture of sustainability.
Made in Longmont, Colorado, USA, we have made Dohm wool hats on antique hand powered knitting machines since 1994. Our hats and accessories are made from world class yarns produced under the strictest environmental standards.
To further our commitment to the environment, we created Xob (say zob) an upcycled collection in 2006 . Pieces and parts of recycled wool blend sweaters and suit jackets are used to create fun and fresh designs you can wear.
We send production remnants to be used in another life cycle. Wool scraps are re-purposed into wool wiping cloths and trimming from fleece are used a filling for dog beds in an animal shelter. Sourcing previously loved sweaters, purchasing mill-end fabrics, and sending production remnants to be used in another life cycle, Icebox Knitting has diverted over sixty thousand pounds of waste from landfills.

How cool -& green- is Icebox Knitting! 

This Xob review is of the Soft Visor Hat and the Pocket Scarf. (check out their website for many more styles) The upcycled materials used for Xob hats and accessories are sorted in four different color families; black/grey, blue/green, brown/tan, or brights.  When you select an Xob style and color group, your new upcycled item will be an original.

It will be unconventional. Green. And made in the USA.

Both the soft visor and the pocket scarf (blue/green) are made of 100% upcycled wool/wool blend sweaters. (Be advised if you are wool sensitive)  I find them a little itchy but I like the warmth. I always have cold hands, so the scarf is perfect for slipping my hands into. Hint to Xob – I’d love to have a scarf style available in a lightweight summer fabric!!
