That perfect handmade touch
You’re getting ready for that big day. Maybe you’re a bride who doesn’t want to wear all white, maybe you’re the mother of the bride or groom – either way, you want to look glorious. What better way to shine than with an exquisitely beaded dark red shawl? After all, you deserve the attention.
This hand knit shawl was made using 100%merino wool single-ply yarn and Preciosa round seed beads with a silver lining for that extra understated sparkle. The wingspan is generous and you can style it multiple ways (check the photos for ideas).
The pattern is Out of Darkness 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 red lace shawl 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. Wool is self-cleaning so hanging it horizontally outdoors for half an hour will get rid of any smells such as tobacco.
If you do need to wash it, hand wash with wool wash detergent or baby shampoo, 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.
