The Garnet Wrap was inspired by the Celtic moorland, where moist turf and leaden skies brew dense, earthy fog. This lush rectangular wrap juxtaposes a deeply etched Celtic braid with simple fields of stockinette stitch. Classic ribbing touched with eyelets provides a strong yet elegant edge. This wrap is generously sized for maximum coziness and doubles as a beautiful throw.
