Whitecaps 2 scarf

Dayflower Wrap - Something blue should not refer to your shoulders. A wedding wrap provides comforting lightweight warmth when the breeze picks up or the sun goes down, and it will look beautiful in your wedding photos, too. This one is made of luxuriously soft kid mohair and silk in a beautiful Victorian pattern called Dayflower. It’s finished with an all-around openwork edging, each point tipped with a sparkling Swarovski crystal. Dimensions: 17” x 77 1/2“

Life Beyond the Wedding

You will wear your wedding dress for one glorious day, but with good care your wrap will see you through a lifetime of special events: holiday parties, formal evenings on the cruise ship, summer concerts under the stars—not to mention other folks’ weddings. Made in cream or white, it will coordinate with any item in your now or future wardrobe.

A Gift that Keeps on Giving

Like a wedding gown, bridesmaid’s dresses can be short-lived. If you choose your attendant’s wrap carefully, she can also wear it to a myriad of special events. Simply select a versatile color that compliments her gown without necessarily matching it. There are so many yarn colors to choose from that you’re bound to discover something just right.
You don’t need a wedding as an excuse for wearing a beautiful wrap. It provides a warm, colorful accent for almost any occasion you can imagine—proms, dinner dances, holiday gatherings, concerts, the theater, restaurants. Made of merino wool or alpaca, it’s a great travel accessory; it will warm your shoulders on a chilly airplane or dress up a simple knit travel dress. If you are headed for the tropics, a wrap may be the only warmth you need.

Splendor wrap - This kid mohair and silk wrap in trellis pattern with leaf edging is made in a wonderful, rich shade of magenta. See how striking it looks against black! Dimensions: 11” x 73 ½”

Wings of the Swan scarf

Favorite wrap - The striking edging is an historic 1880’s pattern called “favorite lace,” which I resurrected from a sheet of yellowing, hand-written instructions. Note how the bold graphic quality of the diamond edging is softened by the yarn’s characteristic halo and by the delicate fluting at the ends. Dimensions: 10 ½” x 66”

Neptune's Trident scarf

Dayflower 2 wrap - Here, an old Victorian pattern looks fresh and new, made up in merino wool and silk in a gorgeous shade of Aegean blue. Dimensions: 15” x 58”

Twist the ends of a pretty scarf, join the ends, and you have a moebius ring—often called an eternity ring, since it has no beginning and no end. This structure gives the accessories a beautiful drape. Made in kid mohair blends, they have a truly cloud-like appearance. You can wear these very feminine pieces with evening, day, or business wear.

Wings of the Swan scarf
