Tavolozza is the Italian word for an artist’s palette, used to mix colours.
And this shawlette is exactly that: a palette where you can mix all the colour you want.
It is filled with possibilities and variations!

The yarn I have used is a treat: conscientiously sourced, crafted, and hand-dyed in Italy by Giulia and Stefania, aka Lanivendole. Giulia has her own cashmere goats and she shears them with lots of love. Stefania is an expert spinner and has a unique eye for the perfect blend.

Make your own Tavolozza and treat yourself to the perfect yarn!
