Whether dressing up your jeans jacket or adding flair to dressier
attire, Volan offers endless possibilities for fashionably warding
off the chill of cool evenings or air conditioning. This versatile
piece is something between a scarf, shawl and wrap with a
crescent shape that allows for many styling options.
Volan has double shaped ruffles on both edges and a two colored
garter stitch body. Innovative construction techniques eliminate
the need for short rows and picking up stitches..

Fiber related arts have a long tradition in my family. As I child I was surrounded by knitting/crocheting aunts and my grandmother always dreamed about having her own yarn shop.
