Product Description

(ey-'lif). noun [usu. as object]

is a cashmere shawl, handknit using several easy lace, slip stitch color work, and knit & purl motifs. The resulting shawl is vibrant with a lot of textural interest. We named it after a literary friend of ours who weaved together a blindingly brilliant and hysterically funny novel about growing up Turkish in America and researching Russian literature as a chosen profession.
