This oversized scarf is woven using a blend of the finest wool and cashmere yarns, yielding a luxuriously soft fabric. With a timeless look, it can be worn by both men and women. The tartan was expertly crafted in January of 2008 to commemorate the anniversary of Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns. Auld Scotland, the name of which references Burns' famous toast to the haggis, features the colours closely associated with Ayrshire countryside. The heavy inclusion of pale yellow in the fabric is a nod to barley, the key ingredient for Scotland's beloved whiskey - another traditional nod to the haggis.
