Spokes
a shawl for him or her

I like to refer to Spokes as my “wearable hug.” The shaped neck area lets the wings of the shawl wrap around the front of your shoulders to envelop you much the same way a hug does.

With Spokes, I have combined a variety of yarns, colors, and stitch textures to create a very luxurious look and feel while maintaining a slightly masculine appearance. Spokes is the perfect shawl on the coldest days of winter, on those chilly nights in summer, and wind-swept days of autumn.
