Etsy Stylist: Warm Up in Winter
Don’t disappear into anonymity in winter when you can stay cozy with these unique cold-weather clothes By Amber Taylor
Comments () | Published January 10, 2011

Brave the cold Washington days and nights in handmade, ultra-warm accessories from Etsy.

Local Etsy seller Smoking Haute offers her U Street Cowl in a variety of colors. Each hand-knit piece is made from alpaca, which is warmer and lighter than wool. $95.

Feel a connection to the land with these finely knitted gloves from Slim Chicken, which are made from her personal alpaca herd. $17.99.

Pop this P.G. Wodehouse-inspired cloche from Everything OK on your head and charge out into the wind and snow. Honoria Glossop hat, $40.

Laura Irwin puts a spin on the plain headband. Earmuffs, begone! Snail Twist Headband, $60.

For a unique luxury fiber touch, bundle up in this vivid fuchsia Dream Scarf (pictured above), made of pure yak down. $130.

Take a tip from those at higher latitudes and get your hands in a pair of thrummed mittens. The fluffy insides pamper your chilly fingers. Cutie Patooties, $43.
