Sea Isle Shawl
Hand dyed brushed alpaca and silk mimics the brush strokes of Impressionist painting masters. Worked on larger needles, this lace weight, halo-like yarn creates a fabric thatis butter soft and light as a feather. Ideal for 3 of 4 seasons, the shawl sits lightly on your shoulders without sliding off; or wear it as a scarf in cooler months. The grande eyelets worked in this shawl gradually increase in number as you reach the border. With just one skein, you will be able to make this delightful lacy design in a weekend.
