Lion Brand Notes:

This elegant version of a ruana was inspired by the romantic spirit of the British Isles. The rich fabric provides warmth and style whether you are touring the castles of Dundee, Scotland, enjoying a night at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, or going out for dinner with friends on a cool fall evening in Boston’s North End.

The beauty of the ruana wrap is just how many ways you can wear it. Leave both sides down and flowing freely as you would a poncho or tie a sash to hold the front pieces in place. Throw one side over the opposite shoulder (as shown) or both sides around opposite arms and create a cowl neck. Choose a spectacular pin to hold your wrap in place.

Top off your look with our traditional Scottish tam you’ll feel like a fair lassie for sure!
