When light hits prism-like quartz crystals, the colours that are refracted are many and varied. Inspired by the variations of colour found in amethyst. With yarn and size options ranging from a large five-colour gradient crescent to a smaller shawl composed of one solid colour with a contrast edging, there is a version of Allira that will best reflect the light that you want to be seen in. Allira is a part of the Chroma Collection; a series of nine shawl patterns, all featuring gradient yarns
