That perfect handmade touch
Linen is the perfect lightweight material for Summer or Spring. This lace shawl will make you stand out in any special occasion, adding an extra touch of elegance to your ensemble without being too warm. The light grey is perfect to offset a white bridal gown or used in informal situations – it’s all in how you wear it.
This hand knit shawl was made using 100%linen yarn and Preciosa round seed beads with a silver lining for that extra sparkle. The wingspan is 140cm (55″).
The pattern is by Bev of Boo Knits, used with permission.
Whether you’re preparing for a bridal ceremony or just want to look unmatched in your everyday wardrobe elegance, this delicate lace shawl with beads is for you. Well cared for, this is a staple to be passed down to other generations and turned into an heirloom.
I recommend you don’t wash this shawl unless you really need to. Linen is a natural fibre so hanging it horizontally outdoors for half an hour should get rid of any smells such as tobacco.
If you do need to wash it, hand wash with delicate wash detergent and do not wring. Air dry horizontally. You may need to use blocking wires to stretch the fibre so it regains its pointy look. If you need help with this, contact me and I’ll be happy to instruct you further.
