Large enough to be wrapped around the shoulders, but light enough to be popped into a bag and brought out on chilly evenings, this hap combines the tripartite lace / border / garter stitch centre structure of the Shetland hap with a contemporary design and construction. The rich colours echo those of the rocks and lichen in Romi’s Nevada landscape.
