Frondis £3.75


A lacy, scalloped shawl to cover shoulders on cool spring evenings or wrap around the neck whilst admiring ice sculptures in frosty winters.

Frondis is worked from end to end with a gentle curve, making it easy to wear as a scarf, shawl or wrap.

Inspired by the serenading wood nymphs at the palace, the textured bark body and leaf edging of Frondis will enchant you.
