Vail Screscent Shawl

Knitters love to make and wear wraps and this week's pattern in MountainTop Vail, designed by Tonia Barry is an exceptionally pretty wrap. Whether knit in naturally colored Vail (as shown) or in Villa, Vail's dyed counterpart, the drape and softness of this crescent wrap will make it a favorite.

Like its namesake, Vail is pure luxury; unlike its namesake, it won't cost you a fortune!

A light fingering designed to be used for garments and accessories, Vail is 70% baby alpaca and 30% bamboo viscose. The bamboo gives it the most delicate luster and drape, while the alpaca contributes an ethereal softness.
