shawls—evoke wool’s warmth and softness in many
different patterns and textures. Organized by the
natural tones of the yarns, these fine woolens are
visually stunning and hold the promise of doing no
environmental harm. Be enchanted by the possibilities:
organic garments ranging from simple garter and
stockinette to more elaborate cables, bobbles, texture,
and lace patterns.
Like a modern fairy tale, Shades of Winter will captivate
