Located in the Interior of British Columbia, with wine production dating back to the 1850s, the Okanagan Valley is one of Canada’s oldest and largest wine regions. Today, the Okanagan Valley has been well established as one of the world’s best grape-growing regions, boasting over 200 vineyards and producing over 60 varietals.

Old Vine is a top-down, one skein shawl designed for that extra special skein of fingering everyone has in their stash. To maximize yardage, the border can be knit until you have just enough left for bind-off!
