Ballena is a breezy shawlette ideal for year round wear. Throw this sweet shawl over your shoulders as summer evenings turn cool and wrap it close around your neck as fall leaves begin to fly. Ballena is shaped to drape comfortably and gracefully over your shoulders and stay in place. Eyelet trim along the upper edge and instructions for making pedestal buttons offer the option of buttoning the neckline in a variety of configurations, adding versatility and style.
