As the weather hit a colder spell this week I found myself layering two thin scarves together to stay warm.

It’s probably time to invest in a chunkier coverup especially when snow is forecast this month. Edinburgh based Fashion and Knitwear designer Fiona Somerville has created this cosy patterned Merino wool scarf (£150) finished with satin binding.

It can be worn around the neck or as an evening wrap over a tailored jacket. Its size means not even a hint of skin will be exposed to the elements. Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2011, Fiona has combined her Scottish heritage with contemporary design. Her knitwear pieces are hand made in Scotland using British wool.
