Elegance meets multi-purpose - there’s no better way to describe the Heliotrope shawl. Its wide diagonal stripes transition into a border with thinner lines that wraps around the entire square. You can cuddle up in it like a blanket, fold it up into a classic triangular shawl shape, and the best part? There’s no wrong side. If you want to highlight the contrasting instead of the main colour, you just flip the shawl to the other side, and wear it “inside out”. So make sure to pick two of your favourite colours from Whistlebare’s selection!
