Continuing with our "cozy coat" theme from last week, we're featuring some delicious wool boucle this week in black, charcoal and taupe/gray. Check out this beautiful black wool boucle shawl made by our Colleen featuring stunning designer buttons.
The shawl is matched with a scarlet-coloured turtleneck sweater made from the super-soft and versatile waffle sweater knit.
The Waffle knit's pattern runs both vertically and horizontally which creates a small square design and also provides that 'comfort' stretch. The waffle knit is brushed so it is super soft and luxurious on both sides. Comes in eggplant, wine, scarlet and navy,
