Lunna Voe

Heirloom shetland lace triangular shawl
Old Maiden Aunt's Shetland lace weight creates an amazingly crisp but woolly fabric. It's perfect for true knitted lace, with patterning on right side and wrong side rows, which needs to hold a firm block to show its full potential. Don't worry if your lace looks like a crumpled heap before blocking, that's normal!
