Early morning walk with golden sunshine slanting through the grey winter trees heralding the promise of warm spring days....captured in a Manta Ray shawl. 


The shawl is hand knitted from sustainably sourced grey and white Zwartbles wool which has been spun with rich orange and yellow merino laps, the edging is grey chunky mill-waste yarn and the tassels are lightly felted chunky grey yarn with waste metallic gold threads. 


The Manta Ray Shawl is our signature shawl - an open lace stitch 'spine' widening into two loose-knit 'wings' which stretch to wrap the shoulders and curve upwards into a kite shaped 'head' which drops to give a deep collar down the back. 

If folded along the spine however, the shawl takes on a completely different appearance - that of a half-size, double thickness traditional triangle shawl which wraps to create a cozy neckwarmer.
