Heather Steel a fantastic knitter has spent endless hours making this intricate shawl. Much of Alis Woods photography encapsulates the wonderful textures and colours from the nearby surrounding landscape.  This piece is inspired by the lichens on the stones seen on the Rosemarkie beach in the Scottish Highlands.  Manufactured from 2ply lambswool marl.  The stitch texture is composed of a lace body graduating into a delicate moss stitch.  A 1ply border detail adds a touch of ruffled femininity which is sure to add a touch of glamour whatever the occasion.

Inspired by the colours and textures of the rocks seen on Rosemarkie beach in the Scottish Highlands
