The western larch can be found in the valleys and lower slopes of BC’s Southern Interior. This large, handsome tree usually grows in mixed forests, but can occasionally be found in pure groups of trees on the fire blackened soil left after a severe wildfire. Its wood, one of the strongest in Western Canada, is often used for heavy construction and railways.

Larch is a top down, textured, triangle shawl consisting of sections of seed, double-seed, and triple-seed stitch, with a four row ribbing border.
