The Shoul (think “shoulder’’ and “shawl’’) has a special neckline that keeps it in place without the need to adjust it, tie it, or hold it closed. Choose from a cashmere-viscose-nylon blend ($59) or acrylic ($42). Both are silky soft, lightweight, and washable and come in colors ranging from neutral camel and basic black to bright red or soft sage. The Shoul folds down into a small square that can easily be tucked into a pocket or purse, making it perfect for travel. Order online at www.theshoul.com or call 805-494-8341.
