Eathie Shawl

Is winter your favourite time for a stroll on the beach? Eathie captures that stark palette – the black of dried seaweed, the cream of seafoam and the steel grey of the sea – to wrap the ocean’s peace around you. Starting from a single point, gentle waves and lacy chevrons spread out like the vast horizon.

Eathie uses three undyed skeins of yarn from three individual sheep local to the region, and is easy to adapt to use up every scrap of your precious yarn.
