Venice Beach Wrap
This is a shawl for all occasions—a go−to accessory on cooler days and a show stopper to complement your favorite little black dress. It’s extra long to allow you to wrap it any which way you choose, but not bulky, thanks to the silk−merino blend yarn. No−fuss striping against color blocking makes an attractive,modern effect.
