Delicate lace meets bold color to create an enchanting shawl. Vicia’s feathery lace adds a touch of elegance to a casual outfit – or perhaps your “something blue” for a spring wedding. The yarn is a luscious merino-cashmere blend, hand-dyed with indigo to create richly variegated subtlety in the lace. Vicia, named for a cousin of the indigo plant, adapts Elizabeth Zimmerman’s classic pi shawl construction for a half-circle shape.
