ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Etsy seller LoveandKnit (AKA Mine Kurtulmus) makes lovely alpaca wool accessories to order, including this great muffler, which looks like something that you'd see on in an anime adaptation of Fat Albert. In a good way.

$50 bucks for that? Does that even cover the cost of the yarn?
You’re not going to pay a lot for this muffler.
That covers the yarn, but not the 3 year or 30,000 mile warranty.
Only downside to that kind of design is the prodigious quantities of moisture you blow out your nose, which in genuinely cold weather will try to freeze, generating a disgusting slush of soggy mess smushed into your face.
God help you if you actually do have a runny nose and add real snot to the mixture.
Up until that point though, it is extremely warm. :)
Was really really hoping for a knitted sculpture of a automobile part. Visual pun disappointment – slash – idea for my next knitting project, I guess.

Just saw these ones too – with buttons!
Coincidence! My wife just made me something similar out of $0.79 of recycled fleece. I love it because it doesn’t come unraveled like a scarf, and you can stick your nose in for additional warmth, or out.
We’ve been calling it a “yarf” for no very good reason. AND I LOVE IT
Hmmm, a muffler. Now knit catalytic converter too.
Not to nitpick (or should I say “knit-pick”?) – but this muffler is crocheted.
