Valley Yarns #79 Comfort Shawl PDF
What could be softer and more easy care than a Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel shawl?! We see this shawl as a comforting hug for yourself or anyone on your gift list. We put on a long warp and wove the store sample plus two more to donate to the Cancer Connection, a local organization that provides support for those dealing with cancer. The wonderful thing about a multi-color warp like this is that each shawl was woven with a different weft, making each one unique and special.
