Kyrgyz Felted Silk Purple Shawl: Deluxe

The intricacy of this shawl is luscious - hand-felted wool on silk in dazzling swirls and spirals.  Seven Sisters of Krygyzstan carry on an ancient tradition of felting, drawing inspiration from their grandmothers ornamentation of the yurt or the rug on their floors.  The horns of deer and sheep - the tails of dogs - all find their way here, in the language of symbol:  protection, courage, amulets against danger.

This extra-large and extra-fine shawl is beautifully warm, but evocative and light as the sun sets it singing.
