This shawl is luxurious and long and it wraps very nicely around you. Again, my own design. As the title suggests I have use mostly dark Wensleydale.
The light cream colour is hand spun Alpaca and I used single ply Lleyn wool which I hand dyed.
This design is very eye catching and the tones are pleasant and relaxed. The shawl hangs very elegantly and the design is very much admired. I have received several requests from admirers for me to sell them the shawl and requests for me to make more. So I suspect that this will be a particularly successful design which may keep me busy! I am really pleased with the result. This is the shawl below. I am blocking it for that fantastic finished look that blocking gives.
I hope you like the photos that show what inspired me to make the shawl, the choice of colours and "feel" I wanted to achieve.
Above is a lovely hair pin my daughter bought me that not only inspired the colours but I use on the shawl.
