AbstractA scarf for wrapping around the neck or any other body portion comprises a longitudinally folded band of material which is transversely sewed to provide a plurality of pockets in the medial portion. The inner wall of each of the pockets is cut away and replaced by a thin sheet of material having greatly improved heat transmission properties. In a preferred embodiment, the sheet material is permeable to water vapor, but not to water. In another preferred embodiment, a pocket for ice particles is formed from the aforementioned vapor permeable, water impermeable, plastic sheet material and secured to the medial portion of the scarf.
