summer in Lot designed by Hélène Marcy

Another in the series of 'Creuse Shawls' is the this summer shaded version.

Hélène has designed a chic simple garter-stitch striped shawl fully emphasising the intriguing mix of naturally dyed colours and the wonderful soft drape of our lace-weight wool. The brilliant blues of the Lot summer skies are dyed with indigo and the the burning sun with weld.

The result is a large, light and luminous shawl which wraps your neck and shoulders with the heavenly shades of a summer in Lot in France. To be worn all year round for warm and chic style.
