This is a hand spun hand knit shawl made using a pre-dyed 80% merino wool and 20% silk blend.
I re-carded the fiber as I didn’t like how the silk was slubby and added a scant amount of angelina. The photo shows it as more of a yellow green than it is; below is a closeup that is truer to the color.
Time to recard: 2 hours. Time to spin: 9 hours. Time to knit: 20 hours. 683 yards, 8 ounces.
This shawlette is approximately 15 inches long, and is made so that it will not slip off the shoulders by adding wedges to make it just slightly more than a half circle or triangle shape, as you can see from the above picture.
Thank you for looking!
