Shawls are possibly the most commonly knitted clothing item because they serve many purposes. No longer viewed as a traditional garment, shawls are now the "in" accessory that works as the perfect finishing touch to any outfit; jeans and a T-shirt, a cocktail dress, or a pair of slacks and sweater and even an evening gown. Choose your shape, stitch and fiber and the possibilities become endless. There are not many garments that are so versatile across all fashion levels.

Shawls can dress up any outfit by using luxury yarns and a stitch pattern that lends itself to the character of the fiber. At String, we often add sequins or paillettes to a design to bring it to a new level of sophistication and an additional layer of elegance and texture.

Medleys Shawl
Our Missoni-inspired Medleys Shawl designed by Linda Morse, combines the best of two yarn companies to create the ideal shawl. Iris Schrier of Artyarns works her hand-dyed magic on TSC’s Zara 100% fine merino wool. Two fibers created specifically for this collaboration were added: Tranquility, a merino/silk/cashmere blend and Bedazzle, a merino wool/cashmere/silk blend “bedazzled” with sequins.

All three yarns come together in a rich color palette creating a stunning garment. Wrap yourself in luxury; you deserve it!

The Medleys Shawl is on sale for 15% OFF the regular price now through April 7th. Don't miss it!
