Winter is already in the corner, bringing with it all the coughs and colds. Which means it’s time to bring out all your cold weather gear. However this year, comes a new winter accessory that may surprise you.. a nose warmer.
This bizarre winter accessroy is a creation of the Nose Warmer Company They are mini knitted caps made to cover only the nose.
The Nose Warmer Company has recently been in the social media spotlight due to it’s very odd-looking designs and utility. During an interview with BuzzFeed, Sally Steel-Jones, the owner of the company, defended the controversial warmer.
“It looks a bit silly, you say? So do Christmas jumpers and bobble hats, but plenty of people wear those,” Steel-Jones said. “With enough cold-nosed people out there to create a demand for the warmers, one day it might be you looking silly walking around with your red, bare nose!”
To be fair, having a cold nose is something I personally deal with every time I leave the safety and warmth of my apartment during the winter. But, to what lengths would I go to protect my frosty nose? I can’t say.
But, would you wear this?
At the very least, you can personalize the pouch’s color or patter to suit your taste. There are also a variety of different materials such as fleece, wool, and faux fur that can be selected to allow your nose to be snuggled up in a fuzzy environment of your preference.
But if you’re not a fan of things on your face, that’s also understandable. No amount of intricate crocheting can remove the feeling of wearing a surgical mask.
These nose warmers are affordable, too. Even with international shipping charges added, a nose warmer costs about $12.
Are you brave (or cold) enough to rock a nose warmer this winter?
