Softly Spoken is a beautiful rectangle lace wrap inspired by northern skies and changing seasons.

Segments of smoothly shifting gradient shades reminisce the vivid colours of Nordic winter skies - nature’s very own gradients shifting from pale pink to blue-purple hues, while the lightweight and airy lace pattern softly whispers sweet promises of upcoming Spring.
