My own Laceweight Handspun Shetland wool was handknit to make this lace Faroese Shawl. The shawl is an original design by Sivia Harding and contains traditional shetland lace motifs. This shawl is perfect for draping over the shoulders but works equally as well to wrap up a new baby in luxury.

Hand knit in natural white, lace-weight handspun 100% shetland wool.

Of Faroese Shawls Wikipedia says "A Faroese shawl is a traditional piece of clothing from the Faroe Islands. The most distinguishing characteristic of Faroese shawls is the center back gusset shaping. Each shawl consists of two triangular side panels, a trapezoid-shaped back gusset, an edge treatment, and usually shoulder shaping. The shoulder shaping allows these shawls to drape over the shoulders and remain in place as the wearer moves, even if the shawl is not pinned in place.
Instead of a more familiar triangular, rectangular or circular shape, Faroese shawls are shaped like butterfly wings"

I have chosen a fine shetland fleece for this shawl. While not as soft as my Merino shawls it will be very warm and cosy for those who love to wear wool.

This unique shawl would make a wonderful and luxurious gift for any woman, especially the new Mom. It is an heirloom that one could put away and pass on to future generations.

SIZE: This shawl is 78 inches across and 29 inches deep.

Whenever you order from Nancy Elizabeth Designs your order will come carefully wrapped in a deluxe Gift box or Gift Bag along with a story of how it was made and full care instructions. we'll also include a sample of "Soak" my favourite no-rinse wool wash. These bags and boxes make excellent storage containers for your fine hand knits when not in use.

If you have any questions at all please let me know.
