HISTORY OF SCARF
The Duke of Krakow and the Winter Scarf
The winter of 1783 was a particularily cold one, especially for celebrated explorer the Duke of Krakow whilst visiting Yeovil. As the days passed and the cold winter continued the Duke started to experience a chill around the neck that later developed into a stiffness around the collar.
The Duke being an intelligent man, sought the council of physician, the eminent Dr Ramsbothem who advised him that he was suffering a minor chill as a result of his neck being exposed to the harsh winter weather. His solution to the duke was simple, "try wrapping a piece of cloth around your neck to keep it warm"
Birth of the first Winter Scarf
The Duke did just that. Being a avid knitter, he decided to knit himself a long piece of cloth made from wool, and to wrap it around the top of his coat, and low and behold the winter scarf was born.
A Tragic End
But the story doesn't end there, the duke loved his winter scarf and over the years he altered the design, making the scarf longer and longer. Unfortunately it was the length of his winter scarf that would eventually lead to his downfall.
One chilly winters day in Cheshire, the duke was out riding his husky-pulled sledge, when his extremely long winter scarf got trapped within the runners, pulling ever tighter and eventually strangling him to death.
Even more unfortunate, the duke hadn't issued his Last Will And Testament to anyone so his entire fortune was left to his Husky dogs, the ones who helped cause his tragic death.
