When we decided to carry Araucania’s kettle dyed lace weight cashmere, Trauco, all I could think of was a soft shawl wrapped around my neck. I wanted something simple, but with a wee bit of pizzazz. I futzed around a bit with the basic neck-down garter shawl idea, and came up with this. A cashmere garter hug o’ goodness. Yummmmm.

Dimensions: The shawl was lightly wet-blocked (no blocking wires were used, just laid it on a towel), and the dimensions are 62” across, 14.5” deep in the middle.
