What is a Ring Shawl?
A Ring Shawl is so called because the cashmere from which it is made is so fine that a shawl can be threaded through a wedding ring. It is this unique fineness that allows the shawl to be worn through the seasons. Like cotton and silk, cashmere is a natural fibre and adapts to the body temperature of the wearer. Therefore, in the height of summer, it cools and in the dead of winter, it warms.
The reason these shawls are handspun and handwoven is that the yarn is so fragile a machine would break the fibres.
