What to do with old scarves and shawls?

It's no secret that wearing scarves (yes, also storing them in the closet) is a kind of self-indulgent fetish, there are ladies who can't ignore perfumes, others falls in love with purses or shoes. This is the nature of the woman, the archetypal gatherer. We no longer have to look for mushrooms, berries and firewood, but the conscious or unconscious desire to gather around us the beautiful or the useful things has remained. So what to do with the remnants of this hobby ? In this case scarves that have morally expired, a little damaged, tired or simply haven't settled in the wardrobe?
