|The shawl was hand crafted near Moscow, using traditional materials and methods.|
The yarn is spun from the fleece of goats, and is most commonly knit in only it's natural colours of white and grey. Said to be as warm as a fur coat, they are very highly prized in their home country where winters can be very harsh.
|Similar in texture to a mohair/cashmere mix, the shawl is lightweight and feels luxuriously soft and silky.|
Having only limited experience knitting laces, I can still appreciate the complexity of this hand crafted design. This highly prized, heirloom quality gift will be worn with great care and valued for generations.
