The Burberry Scarves Buying Guide
The Burberry range of scarves is a failsafe sartorial choice whatever the weather, and can be worn to dress up or down any look. The heritage British brand has been making scarves in various sizes and shapes for decades, with the classic nova check, being instantly recognizable as a Burberry signature. Most scarves are 100% lambswool or Scottish woven-wool, but more modern, trend-led fabrics have been introduced into the range, with faux fur, and extra-long designs being the choice for those who want to make an impact.

How To Care For Your Burberry Scarves
Use baby shampoo or a mild detergent like Woolite, Essence, or specialist wool shampoo. Soak your scarf for two hours before removing the garment, and then press out excess water with a clean towel. Do not wring, as this may damage the original shape and fabric.
- How do I know if my Burbery scarf is genuine?
