Two versions for the same shawl: classical or colourful! Make your choice!

A present...


Summertime will be so sweet with Volga... Perfect for summer nights, Volga will soon be adopted!


Where does it come from?

Volga is present. A present that Hélène from Soie et Laines wished to offer to PurPle Laines' customers. Hélène is fond of classical colours, PurPle Laines loves colours so we'll show you both versions. (Many other photos to see on Hélène's blog)

It's amazing to see how the choice of a colour is determinative in a pattern. worked in Fonty Bohème, Volga is an indispensable every day accessory, discreet and sober. Made in Kibou by Noro, Volga turns more rebel and your friends will soon covet it! This season ready-to-wear collections highly feature this hard blue, it'll be esay to match it. It's up to decide which version is your style.

Both versions are soft: Kibou is soft, right from the start. It is a blend of coton, wool and silk. Boheme will get softer and softer as you wear it because it's made of cotton and linen.


Hélène worked a waves stitch, which is based on yarn overs and K2tog, thus creating a wavy effect.
