From the pattern:
Hand-painted yarns tend to create horizontal lines of color as you work with them. Here we tilt that horizontal tendency on the diagonal with undulating increases and decreases along the border. This two-ply, Canadian hand-painted Merino has extraordinary color groupings, long-wearing strength, and a surprising amount of spring and cohesion. Watching the colors unfold, Elanor was reminded of the Italian marbled endpapers in sleek, leather-bound classics - hence, the name of this shawl.

There is a typo mentioned in the errata:
