The Wedding Bells Shawl brings together three wedding symbols in its lace pattern. Each end is decorated with hearts and bells while the main part of the shawl is made up of a diamond pattern bringing in mind the wedding ring.
Knitted up in the sheerest of lace yarns, Kidsilk, it gives the bride an airy wrap that will still reveal the wedding dress underneath. While it is like a dream in bridal whites it is equally good looking in matching colours for the bridesmaids. The Kidsilk yarns comes in an large range of colours so everyone could be sure to find the perfect match for their dress.
