About Fraas: Last year scarf producer V. Fraas (corporate owner of the FRAAS brand) celebrated the completion of 130 years in business. 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. But V. Fraas has more to celebrate than mere longevity and persistence: it is a forward looking company that continues to expand at a rapid pace, and it is constantly implementing new ideas and concepts.

For the Fraas Shawl-Scarf and me, it was love at first site (at least on my side, I am not sure how this beautiful wrap feels about me.) I received the wrap that you see above in a beautiful grape/purple color. The first thing I noticed when I pulled it from the packaging was the pretty, slightly rippled edge. This gives the wrap a sense of movement. It is also very long, so it provides great coverage on a chilly Autumn afternoon. The knit acrylic fabric is super soft and can be handwashed in cold water.
