Years ago we designed this wrap for that season’s warm-weather weddings. It remains to be seen if weddings will be on the docket this year, but if not, we’ll just have to be happy to wear our Wedding Shawl any old day!

Movie night at home or a walk around the block, this Wedding Shawl adds a layer of beauty. And in our rayon-from-bamboo Burnish, it is definitely elegant, but also as durable as a truck.

We recently added some truly stunning colors to our Burnish collection, including this Blue Agave beauty. A gentle blue-green from the softer side of nature’s spectrum, it’s subtle enough to read as a neutral but interesting enough to put a kick in your step!

Blue Agave or any of Burnish’s other 16 colors, you’ll need just three skeins to cast on for your own Wedding Shawl!
