Spokes
a shawl for him or her

I like to refer to Spokes as my โ€œwearable hug.โ€ 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.
