Vancouver’s favourite activewear brand, Lululemon, has finally designed a fall-friendly scarf for its local climate. Like the ever-popular Vinyasa scarf, the versatile Falling Freely Neck Warmer can be worn a variety of ways. The usual snaps have been replaced by a zipper, and the typical luon has been substituted with cozy Merino Wool to help seal off the cool autumn air.
