Is this a good gift?
I made myself a neck warmer out of one skein of baby alpaca. It's just done in ribbing, but only long enough to go around the neck, and can be fastened a few different ways with some pretty buttons.

I really like it, because it's warm and soft, but not as bulky as a true scarf. I don't have to cram it into my coat. Would these make a good gift for kids' teachers? Or will people think, "Wow, she really skimped on that scarf!"

Good gift or no?

I think it sounds great! I am short, so I always make my scarves shorter and narrower than a lot of patterns I see. I think it would be great for active people, who don't want to fuss with a scarf. You might have to make them wider or a little longer, depending on the size of the recipient.

If you go over to etsy.com and click on knitting and then search for scarf you will see quiet a few different kinds of neck only scarves so im figuring that itís an acceptable item to gift.

It's a great idea. There are actually lots of patterns for neck warmers.
