Scarf trumpet animals
This beautiful scarf is printed with illustrations of the most popular trumpet animal: the stentor! This design will please any microbiologist who needs a new field accessory , or wants an original excuse to discuss regeneration in protozoa.
Fun fact: this scarf was designed with the help of Athena Lin, a student who researches the regenerative abilities of the stentor. “If I cut [the stentor] in half, they know which half is missing and they know to replace that half. This is crazy because it is one cell. How do they know what's missing? How do they repair themselves? We suspect that cell division processes are at play, because it resembles regeneration. I have found a few factors that may play a role, but the end of my thesis is not yet in sight!”
These organic cotton scarves have a soft touch and complete every outfit.
