Does this include headscarves? I don't think it's cold enough in Indonesia that anyone would wear a neckscarf (which is what I normally associate with the word "scarf").

Headscarf has its own word (jilbab)

A scarf is often worn as a fashion accessory ... usually very light material.

I heard homeless people die from freezing in the winter though so i don't know about that. Plus my boyfriend in Bekasi is always complaining that it's recently gotten freezing lol
