Bring winter fashion to life with exciting knitwear from Thusk™. A far cry from a traditional scarf, this fitted button scarf upscales urban and outdoor winter outfits for ultimate adventure elegance.
Handmade in Africa with the individual attention of a team of dedicated Thusk™ knitters, the Button Scarf is one of the premium-quality knitwear items available to complement your winter wardrobe. Made from a wool/acrylic blended yarn in a ribbed pattern, the button-up design accentuates your outfit translates into easy style on safari or whenever the mercury drops.
We recommend taking a warm layer on safari. It gets cold on the back of open game viewers, in the early morning, and late in the evening in Africa. The same can be said of fishing trips, walks, and birding excursions with early morning starts. In going prepared, you are able to concentrate on your surroundings and the gravity of your experiences. The added warmth of the knitted Button Scarf will aid in keeping you snug. In folding around the neck, it also adds a subtle yet striking touch of sophistication to your outdoor wardrobe.
The wool used for the Thusk™ Button Scarf adds to the Thusk™ story to make it even more special. Individually cared for by dedicated South African farmers, the wool is derived from sheep reared against the backdrop of African plains - to be used again in African landscapes on safari. Sustainably sourced from this special selection of farmers, the wool is delicately handled from farm to store and into the hands of our knitters where this natural fibre is made into a product you can enjoy whenever you feel a nip in the air.
This Button Scarf is made from 75% wool and 25% blended acrylic yarn - and the buttons are made from all-natural coconut husk. Wool is a remarkable, naturally renewable and sustainable product. Not only does it retain its shape and softness despite age and stretching, it also has a number of benefits for your health and comfort. With thermal insulation properties, it's both warm in winter and breathable in summer. It is also hypoallergenic - resistant to bacteria, mildew, mould, as well as dust mites.
Nothing beats handmade knitwear made by loving mothers and grandmothers. With this in mind - together with the opportunity to provide an income to women in Africa - founder of The Safari Store, Steve Adams, approached his mom with an idea. The idea was Thusk™ - a range of handmade safari, outdoor, and everyday knitwear. As an avid knitter, mother, and grandmother, Hazel Adams was the ideal person to head up Thusk™ - providing patterns, wool, and a boosted income for a group of local Zulu knitters in South Africa. Made to Hazel's exacting standards, Thusk™ knitwear is designed to keep you warm no matter where your adventures take you - and warm your heart at the same time by helping a group of deserving craftswomen in Africa.
Thusk™ supplements the government pensions of these Zulu grandmothers, who knit at their own pace around their daily responsibilities. This flexibility allows them to meet their responsibilities as family caregivers whilst receiving an income. Each Thusk™ product has a tag with the name of the knitter - a small but meaningful connection to the women behind every Thusk™ creation.
Say no to plastic packaging
Your Thusk™ knitwear is packaged in a recyclable box. At The Safari Store, we are working hard to eliminate plastic from all of our packaging. This forms part of our commitment to a green future and the preservation of the environment, so future generations can enjoy pristine natural spaces.
