Helen’s Choice … in a gorgeous deep purple cashmere/silk/merino blend in a fingering weight. This is knit in one piece and completely in the round following the chart OR the written, round-by-round directions.

A fun, graceful knit designed specially for the sister of the cashmere breeder whose goats gave their fiber to create this amazing blend with its great stitch definition.

NOTE: this shawl must be blocked for maximum “bloom” of the lace patterning
