Wool Blend Shawls
By Mary Mark
I travel to Central Asia and am steeped in the history of the Jamawar, the exquisite wool and silk shawl. It is so much more than an accessory to me. It connects me with the heart and hands of beautiful people who have made and worn them for centuries. I wear them everywhere. It can be as warm as a coat and as beautiful as a poem. It is my compromise to show respect and cover my head when necessary. I think about the sheep being raised and sheared, the formulas and process for the rich dyes, the thoughts and time spent looming, and the intent of the designs. Thank you for this gift of yourself and your world.
This has become a favorite. It's lightweight, the wool is spun like silk and yet it keeps me warm! I love it!
I ordered this shawl for a gift and am now reordering for myself. The quality is very nice and the color and design are vivid and beautiful. I love the fact that its reversible and expect to get a lot of wear. Well worth the price.
