I was inspired by the silky drape and color shifts of Panda Silk in Firebird (color 5201).

This is a fingering-weight yarn that is 52% bamboo, 43% Merino wool and 5% silk. It is 204 yards in 1.76 oz per skein or 187 meters in 50

I had EXACTLY enough yarn for this shawl. If you are the nervous type, or your gauge differs from mine slightly, you might want to get 4 skeins
of yarn.

The shawl’s unusual shape is part yarn-saving triangle, and part figure-flattering hexagon, with fun scalloped edges, too.
