A cosy shawl for the autumn evenings. The stitches and colourwork are influenced by the gilded paintings in stately homes, and how the gilded wood frames the art so beautifully. The rustic blend of Merino & local Devon Zwartbles in the John Arbon Textiles Harvest Hues range means the colours are mottled and rich, creating a subtle and interesting stripe.
