Originally designed for our Pro-Verbial Club, the Elisabetta Damask Shawl and Dewdrop colorway is now available for all!
Elisabetta is an ephemeral, reversible shawl worked at a gauzy gauge in a geometric knit-purl damask pattern. It is created from a single skein of beautiful Shimmering Tussah. The silk tussah yarn is a 2-ply with a subtle tooth which helps the fabric meld like a wool, while feeling more like a cotton. This yarn is one we rarely offer as it is hard for us to get. And we have a very limited number of skeins at this time.
The light indigo blue color, Dewdrop, was designed especially for Cecelia and her stunning design. When Elisabetta moves with the light and breeze, the surface resembles the cool, calm flow of water. Each skein of yarn is hand-dipped into our indigo vat at our Oakland studio. Cecelia paired a light, whisper pink, named First Petal, strand of cotton embroidery floss, for a touch of weight and color at each end of the shawl. This addition allows the shawl to have gorgeous drape while keeping the lace-like fabric open. The main body of the shawl is knit using a single strand creating an absolutely stunning fabric.
The knits and purls catch the light differently, creating the damask effect when viewed at glancing angle, but if the shawl is viewed single-thickness or with any backlight, it is transparent. Elisabetta is perfect for anyone dressing up or down and in cool or warm weather.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
