"my absolute favorite"
I love this one so much. It is crocheted in a pineapple pattern, and so adorable. It is really big and so warm, and soft, like a cloud. Fit for a princess, and so elegant. The softest alpaca wool and loosely crochet so it feels even more languid like soft water in one's hands. This, like all the other alpaca shawls, are heirlooms. I am 55 now, and I know these will last for the next generations as well. Workmanship, workwomanship, great art has no gender. This is wearable art.
- feeling good and cared for
