Llightweight Ribbed knit was used for this comfy shawl. Good for any time of year. The shawl has a small strap to close the wrap which can be on the shoulder or in front - your choice. It works just as well for a scarf. The shawl is 68" x 15" with 2" self fringe, hand knotted and beaded. It is delicate machine washable or hand washable because of beads and fringe.
