NOVICA

100% alpaca shawl, 'Genuine Ochre' (Peru)

Nostalgia blends with today's fashions inspiring Marianella Asto in the design of this shawl. "This type of crochet stitch has been used for centuries, and I am still fascinated by the patterns it creates," confides Asto. She crochets the shawl by hand in ochre hues to emphasize the warm softness of genuine alpaca wool.
