The Cherry Falls Shawl (shown in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter) with its classic striping, harkens back memories of camp blankets and cozy nights wrapped up in wool around a fire. As we navigate COVID-19 and our love of hiking, we decided to name this shawl after one of our beloved local haunts - Cherry Falls. Designer Rachel Kieselburg grew up in the area, and Cherry Falls was one of her first hikes as a child. It is a reminder of the beauty of our own backyard here in the Snoqualmie Valley. The Cherry Falls Shawl is a large blanket shawl, and will certainly keep you snug and warm.
