Product details

Neurodiversity Shawl was created in collaboration with “Operation: Social Justice,” a charity initiative to bring awareness to and fight for equity in rights and opportunities for marginalized groups. As a member of a neurodiverse family and the mother of an autistic daughter, I am a strong advocate for disability rights being civil rights. This shawl pattern represents the colorful complexity of our family, as well as our individual brains, personalities, and journeys.

Sensory input plays an important role in my daughter’s autism journey. To reflect that, I not only chose a yarn that was visually vibrant, but also has a unique texture. Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball yarn has a “homespun” quality to it, with bumpy texture, thick and thin spots, and both a softness and smoothness to it. As you select your yarn for this shawl, think about the sensory experience: let the journey of making the shawl be just as fun as the end product itself!
