Scarfy: The Versatile Scarf with a Terrible Name that Makes You Look Like a Muppet

The Scarfy touts itself as the “scarf that’s so versatile it can be worn as a dress, a jacket, a vest, a belt and so many more ways.” The first thing most people will notice about this product is its name. “Scarfy” sounds like “barfy” which is a slang adjective for something that make one want to vomit or that exhibits the look and smell of barf. (It is also the name of the dog in the Family Circus comic strip.) However, that is just the start of the problems with this fuzzy clothing item.

Scarfy looks more like something you would use to keep your bathroom floor dry than something you would want to wear as clothing.

But if you would ever like to go out in public looking like a Muppet then Scarfy can’t be beat. Try the red Scarfy to look like Elmo:

Or put on the blue Scarfy for the elegant high-fashion look that made Cookie Monster famous:

Longtime infomercial viewers will be reminded of the Infinite Dress, whose infomercial aired heavily in the 1990s. But the Infinite Dress at least looked sleek and not like road kill dipped in paint. Here is a brief clip of the old Infinite Dress infomercial:

During my search I also came across this nightmarish video of inventor Lydia Silvestry demonstrating her Infinite Dress:

The “dancing” and the sleazy background music turned that demo into a creepy GILF striptease that will be popular on fetish websites for years to come!

  • Call me crazy, but how does this work as a dress? I know they have that one shot, but I still can’t figure it out.

  • You can get these at Walgreens for $5.99 or 2 for $10. Not this brand name, though. They are hanging on displays with hats, gloves and winter scarves.
