oh pisces moon, you sentimental fool you. the most sensitive and empathetic of all the moon signs, a pisces moon is nothing to be toyed with. you are deeply attuned to your spiritual and imaginative sides, iving often in multiple worlds at once, conscious of much more around you than other signs. you thrive when given a safe space to retreat to, to balance out the intensity with which you tackle both reality and your own imagination. due to your empathy, you’d do best to take care of who you let into your life, as you can be easily derailed and drained by those who demand too much of your emotional energy. find balance by relying on both your brilliant heart and your kind mind.

the pisces shawl is a subtle creature, relying on knits and purls to create textured columns throughout the body before opening up to some comfortable cables along the border. soft shetland wool makes a beautifully warm and comforting piece for your wardrobe.
