Shawls & Stoles

Shawls are wearable, functional, art. (A stole is just a narrower shawl – but larger than a scarf… complicated, I know. I suppose that a cloak is a larger shawl).

Regardless of what you name it, a shawl properly chosen can make an outfit. It can keep you warm and dry, it can be sturdy, fragile, thick, diaphanous. It is one of my favorite things to make.

The norm for sizing is 40″x80″ for a shawl, and 28″x80″ for a stole (fyi, a scarf can be anything from 6″ wide up to well, 27″). We aren’t sure who makes these rules up, but it’s a good benchmark to veer from with each project.

Some examples of my work. These have all been created and found new homes. As I create new stock, I will post those as “available”.

If you follow this link, you will find the shawls available as of 21 November 2017
