Product description

The geometric motif and dusky palette of the Auna shawl evoke a sunset hitting a high desert cliff. Knit with Vale, a laceweight yarn spun from 100% USA-grown Rambouillet wool, Auna’s simple garter-stitch triangles strike the perfect balance of whisper-soft drape and enduring springiness. 


Each triangle is shaped with simple yarnovers and worked separately. After seaming, the border is picked up around the edge and knit in the round. 

Designer: Gudrun Johnston
