FRAAS Fairisle Infinity Review

Hello fashionistas!
I've been wanting to review the FRAAS Infinity Scarf for you all. I was sent this to test run and I absolutely love it. 

First of all I want to share a little about the company and the product.




The Fairisle Infinity, for example-- which is comprised of acrylic, nylon and a bit of wool. It is soft and extremely lightweight which makes it a great item for transitioning from season to season. It is also ideal for travel and almost any location and climate. It loops easily and requires no tying which is one of the genius things about an infinity scarf. Not only will it dress up and function with outerwear, it will look great with a sweater, dress or blouse, and as an accent accessory. Colors include navy/turquoise, camel/ivory, rose/petal, and black/grey. This particular item retails in most stores for abut $40.

“Our goal at FRAAS is to give consumers great choices of unique, exciting products at affordable price points,” says Aimee Zucchetti, the company's’ Brand and Sales Manager. “This new style—which is part of a far larger collection that includes an extremely comprehensive choice of scarves and wraps in many materials, sizes and shapes— allows consumers to renew their wardrobes and accessorize
 like fashionistas without spending a fortune!”
“Whenever a woman wants to add a finishing touch to her outfit and add zest to her entire look—she can reach for one of our FRAAS styles and be 100% confident that it will produce the right effect. It is amazing what a difference a scarf can make,” says Ken Krieger, the VP of Sales for the innovative international manufacturer of woven and knit scarves, stoles, ruanas, wraps, capes and related accessories.

Ever since its foundation in 1880 by Valentin Fraas, the world leader for mufflers and shawls has thrived and advanced under the control of his descendants—a remarkable feat in this transitory world.

Truly internationally oriented, the company boasts sales subsidiaries and satellite offices in New York, Toronto, London, Paris, Berlin, Denmark, Italy, India, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. Products are distributed worldwide via department and specialty stores as well as online retailers.

I think that this scarf adds a touch of chicness to any ensemble. I love the navy/turquoise color. I chose to pair mine with a simple cardigan, tee shirt, jeans, and loafers. I thought that the scarf added a touch of autumn to the outfit. The scarf is incredibly soft. It is also so long that you can loop it around three times! I only looped mine twice because I wanted a slouchier look. I can't wait to wear this with a blazer. I think that it is a versatile sweater that will be great for the cooler months. 

This product also comes in a few other colors,  navy/turquoise, camel/ivory, rose/petal, and black/grey.
Any of these scarves would be a great addition to your wardrobe, plus it will keep you nice and warm!
