Sumptuous is a blend of Polwarth Wool and Alpaca Fibre, deliciously soft with a magic puff factor that allows her to gauge across many needles and patterns, so you can have a play with anything from DK to worsted, 4mm to 7mm.

The Dawn Skies Shawl was created specially around the colour Blush in the Sumptuous range. It’s ball band describes the magic of the sun slowly peeking over the hills, staining the dawn sky with a magnificent array of hues, including a soft, warm pink.

This shawl aims to embody the magic of a frosty morning sunrise, with the grey symbolising the sleepy hill tops, the white eyelet sections as the layers of fluffy, low lying clouds and morning mist, and the stockingette sections representing the clear, striking pink glinting on the horizon.

Sumptuous yarn is available for purchase here or the full knit kit from The Woven can be ordered here.
