Women in a textile workshop in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley take scraps of silk left from the production of saris and weave them into a uniquely textured yarn. Knit or crocheted, they transform what would otherwise be discarded into cozy winter accessories that brighten the dreariest days. This set is decorated with beads and traditional mirrorred disks that are intended to ward off the evil eye.


This fabric will shed when first worn, due to the nature of the recycled silk scraps. Most customers have found that this decreases dramatically after the hat and scarf have been washed.

Comments about Silk Sari Knit Hat and Scarf Set:

I should have read the reviews before wasting the high shipping charges. The scarf was damaged upon receipt with a two inch hole in it and the fringe was falling off. The hat would not fit a newborn. Smelled awful. I never had any silk item smell like this. Very disappointed that Nat'l Geographic would even offer to sell this item.

                I bought 2 sets of this lovely hat/scarf set to use as Christmas gifts for two friends. I was excited when they arrived, but my excitement was short lived as the hat was soooo small (on both sets) that I was forced to return both sets to Nat Geo. The agent was very helpful when I phoned my concern. Am awaiting post paid return label by mail.

                This was a beautiful scarf and hat set. But, the material is a bit scratchy and the hat is REALLY small considering I bought it for my teenage granddaughter and it barely fits her head - which is not large.
