Perfect for lazy days.
If you hadn't noticed by now that sloths are something of an internet craze at the moment, then newsflash: they are. I decided to make a scarf that looks like a sloth, so that I have someone to be lazy with when everyone else is too busy to just relax. Live slow, die whenever.
