Lace + Mohair + Silk = a match made in knitting heaven! Plus, this is a hand dyed mohair silk blend in a gorgeous blush color.
Slightly crescent-shaped design gives this shawl/scarf an interesting shape that will allow it to be easily worn in so many different ways. It can be effortlessly worn as a traditional scarf as the resulting lace fabric is so supple.
As a shawl, it looks lovely draped around your shoulders for a little added warmth and romantic touch to any outfit.
The length also lends itself to be worn like a cowl just be gently winding it twice around the neck and tucking the ends in.
Plus, the beauty of such a fine lace yarn is the fabulous yardage. This shawl/scarf used only one hank of yarn!
