I used Manos del Uruguay Lace yarn. This is a luxurious blend of alpaca, silk and cashmere and it was lovely to knit with. There’s a neat connection between this yarn and its production and the purpose of this project. Manos del Uruguay is a non-profit organisation that brings economic and social opportunities to rural women and this shawl is destined to help more women when it is raffled by the American International Women’s Club of Cologne (AIWCC) to raise funds for local women’s projects.
Depending on the light, you see the waves in the pattern
or focus more on the blue tones.
Of course, an accessory like this should be worn, too!
Fingers crossed this shawl will live up to its name and work a little magic!
