Ammil is an airy and wintery shawl, made using mohair lace yarn and edged in clear beads reminiscent of ice crystals. Written in multiple sizes, so you can choose the perfect size for your yarn.

The beading is optional but they do add a little bit of weight to the edge, which makes the shawl drape beautifully.

Ammil means “the thin film of ice that lacquers all leaves, twigs and blades of grass when a freeze follows a partial thaw”.
