A light as a feather, easy to wear shawl…whether you wear it in the day to keep the sun off your shoulders or in the evening to battle the chills.
It is named for the Altair geometric colouring books, the forerunners of the modern adult colouring obsession because the striking geometric lace pattern reminded me of my love for them.
