I give you Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Wool. The best stuff on earth.

I used this to whip out a scarf over a weekend. I made it a couple of years ago. I still have tons of this cashmerino left. I also made one in black.

This baby will keep me warm in Europe in January.

For those of you curious. This is a knit pattern. K2, P2 across for as wide as you want, and reverse that knitting across the back.

@Andrew that can be arranged. This cashmere wool costs about $16 per skein. I think this scarf was 3 skeins and about 5-7 hours of knitting.

a beard has the potential to take the place of a scarf

Dschonn says:
@hale is right. I knit a scarf very similar to that one for my sister. It took me far longer than it should have because I lacked focus. It's kind of lavender in color, and ridiculously soft. I don't remember what kind of yarn I used. I might be able to find the little paper thingy that came around the skein if you're interested.
