After years of fans learning how to knit in order to have their very own Tom Baker scarf, Whovians can officially purchase one licensed by the BBC. Produced by Lovarzi, this replica of the famous scarf worn by The Doctor from 1974-1981 is available for purchase now. Knitted for The Doctor by Madame Nostradamus according to “Arc in Space”, the scarf came to be a pop culture icon and a staple at many Science Fiction conventions around the world.
At £49.99 (or approximately $80.00), this scarf is priced around where the fan made counterparts have been for years. Unlike the fan made scarves, the official version is made of a thinner nylon yarn which equates in a much more intricate weave. Soft to the touch and much less bulky than most 13 foot long scarves, this item is a must for any fan or cosplayer. The high quality yet lighter weight makes it much easier to wear for hours on end.
