December’s caplet grants a little elegance to your winter wardrobe. Think fancy holiday parties and theater performances. It is paired with a recipe for holiday chocolate bark.

The name Lavandula* is from the latin name for lavender. Designed to keep your shoulders warm at a winter performance of The Christmas Carol this shawl with a hood takes the place of both your scarf and a hat.
