Mares’ tails, more commonly known as cirrus uncinus, is derived from Latin, meaning “curly hooks”. These clouds are generally sparse in the sky and very thin. This shawl reflects this image with it’s sparse use of a small lace motif and textural body. Knit in this beautiful ‘Paradise’ colorway by Anzula, it’s like a summer breeze on your shoulders and neck!
