Brackenhill Shawlette
I designed the Brackenhill Shawlette for Delia Graham Rasmussen, the owner of Ravenwood Cashmere. Taking inspiration from her family history, it is named for the only standing tower of the notorious Scottish Graham clan. This Faroese-style shawlette features an Argyle lace pattern bordered by Celtic lace.
