It’s impossible not to have fun while knitting this shawl! Texture, stripes and short rows keep it interesting the entire way thru.

Yarn: DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk is spun from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two wonderful fibers, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and shine). The yarn fibers are untreated, which means they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibers’ natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.
Made in Peru.
