Maidenhair Shawl:

Alice Starmore: "This shawl illustrates the impact of yarn and colour choice upon the patterns. The patterns are the same as in the cardigan, but the thicker, heathered wool creates an effect that is soft and subtle."

Virtual Yarns yarn pack requires the book Aran Knitting; 18 skeins, one size, about $185.

Aran Knitting
is one of the more technique-oriented Alice Starmore Books, yet still has many of her famous textured designs.

Alice Starmore Hebridean 3-ply, Alice Starmore Scottish Heather, and Jamieson’s Simply Shetland Heather Aran (formerly Soft Shetland) are comparable yarns.
