Inspired by the detachable sleeves worn by Claire in the Outlander TV series, this great looking shrug will take the chill off your shoulders and arms and never slip or fall like a shawl. Knitted in the soft and cozy Himalayan Trail, yak and merino yarn, it is lightweight and super comfortable to wear. The Celtic styled cable gives it an eye catching look too!
