The sun sinks below the horizon earlier each day, the birds have flown to warmer climes and the earth is crisp below your feet, winter has arrived …

Through the darker, colder days of winter wool is my constant companion, protecting me from the icy wind and wrapping me in a warm, deliciously cosy hug.

Farlam is the shawl of my winter dreams, warm and cosy with beautiful structural lace details and a simple touch of garter for comfort.

Worked in aran weight this gorgeous shawl works up quickly and keeps you lap warm as you knit. The perfect winter project!
