Shampa Limpet Shell: Silky and Soft Stole with a Grid Pattern
Silk and wool are so carefully balanced in this Limpet Shell stole that you can wear it no matter what the weather is like. Mulberry silk (70%) makes this stole very light, soft, and airy, so you won't even feel it around your neck or shoulders. On another hand, because of the fine merino wool (30%), Limpet Shell stole is the best choice for a chilly day because it will wrap you up in its warmth.
The dominant colour is beige but the stole is enriched with a simple, orange grid, so it becomes and interesting accessorise to combine with simple, one-colour shirts, tops, and dresses.
