Shawl - Midnight on Skye - Windswept - Pure Silk with Wool Accent

Sorry, this item has sold.

MIDNIGHT ON SKYE: There is almost no light polution at night in many places on the Isle of Skye. It boasts several Dark Sky locations where you can see the stars, the Milky Way and sometimes the Northern Lights very clearly. From the Dark Sky areas the sky looks deep blue instead of black and you can see hints of color in the stars within the galaxy of the Milky Way which is unbelievably vast and spectacular in the night sky. This yarn combination reminds me of those starlit skys.

WINDSWEPT: This design reflects the windswept beauty of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. These shawls are my most popular design. They come in a wide palette of colors found in the landscape of Scotland and are individually named for locations or panoramas on the Isle of Skye.

Hand knit, durable, lightweight and warm. A stylish shawl that can be worn in a variety of ways to fit most all body shapes and sizes. Hand washed and blocked to stabilize color and sizing. Consider one of my shawl pins to secure the shawl around your shoulders depending on how you wrap it.

FIBER TYPE: Pure Silk with wool accent

COLOR: Blue silk with yellow, orange, rose, purple, blue accents

SHAPE: Asymmetrical triangular

DIMENSIONS: Top edge 96 inches Bottom edge 46 inches Side Depth 20 inches

WEIGHT: 12 ounces

SEASON: Perfect alone in fall and spring to keep the chill off. In winter a wrap type accessory.

HOW IT IS MADE: Hand knit from my original design pattern perfected while visiting the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Everything on Skye is windswept and beautiful which I tried to reflect in this asymmetrical triangular design. Hand washed and blocked to stabilize color and sizing. Comes packaged right side out in a clear protective bag so you can see the color without having to open the package should the color not appear as you expected.

Made in a smoke-free, cat-friendly home. The cat may have watched the shawl being knitted, but there has been no cat contact with the shawl after it was finished, hand washed, blocked and packaged ready to wear.

HOW TO WEAR: Alone in fall and spring to keep the chill off or as an accessory in winter. Photos show variety of ways the shawl can be worn depending upon your personal style or tastes. NOTE: The longest edge is the top edge when wrapping yourself in a Windswept shawl. A detailed care card is included in every shawl package.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions for shawls

A detailed care information is included in every knitwear order. The care information is printed on the inside of the folder enclosed with your shawl order.

In general, all knitwear should be gently hand washed in luke warm water with a gentle shampoo and rinsed thoroughly. Then wrung out and patted into shape while it lays flat to dry. Shawls have been washed and blocked to stabilize colors and sizing before packaging.

CAUTION: Washing your shawl in water that is too hot will cause the wool to shrink which is irreversible. Likewise DO NOT put the shawl in your washing machine or in the dryer because that will felt the wool and cause shrinkage, which is irreversible as well.

Sizing details

My shawls and wraps will fit most ladies. The dimensions are listed for each item so you can judge how it will fit your own shoulders. If an item is better suited for a tall or broad shouldered lady or a more petite woman that will be noted in the item description.

Custom and personalized orders

All of my handmade items are one-of-a-kind, completed as shown and ready to ship.

I do not take custom orders per say. However, if you see something you would like in another color, please contact me. I may have one planned for the design you like with yarn colors that might suit your needs.

Shipping & Processing Time

Please insure your shipping address is correct, once the package is at the post office, I cannot make any changes to your address.

I live in the far western mountains of North Carolina. In our rural location there is no true overnight shipping, expedited mail or weekend package mailing service. The fastest mail we have is Priority Mail which is used for most shipments. Very light items, such as pincushions and shawl pins, will be shipped by First Class Mail.

All of the items you see in my shop are the actual ones you will receive. I expect to have your package in the mail to you no later than 3 business days after your purchase, hopefully much sooner than that.

Returns and Exchanges

RETURNS: I accept returns, no questions asked. Please do me the courtesy of not soiling, wearing or using an item before returning it.

From my arts & craft show sales experience, I understand that a buyer would like to feel the actual item, look at the color next to your face and actually try it on. My work has been carefully checked for quality when finished and blocked then checked again before packing for shipment.

EXCHANGES: I do not accept exchanges due to the uniqueness of these items. I will refund the listed price of any returned item when I receive your return shipment.

One-of-a-kind shawls, but I see different colors?

I never knit exactly the same shawl twice. There are pattern and yarn color similarities in the shawls listed but I make subtle changes to my designs each time I knit it.

An example of this is in my Windswept Shoulder Wrap. Each is an asymetrical triangle, but the accent color is added differently in each one and so each comes out a slightly different size and look.

HELP! I snagged or otherwise damaged my shawl

It is actually not that easy to damage these shawls as they are quite durable. Snags or pulls are easy to fix BUT washing it in water that is too hot will shrink it and that is irreversible.

Contact me with details of your problem. If I can, I will gladly help repair damage to a shawl I knitted for you. Cost of the repair and shipping will be worked out before you send the shawl back to me.

Consolidate Items for Shipping?

Whenever you order more than one item, we will consolidate those into one box whenever possible so all your order will arrive at the same time. If the order has to be split into two or more boxes I will tell you that in the "On Its Way to You" message that's I personally send when the boxes have been delivered to the US Post Office.

How will my order be packed for shipping?

All knitted items are shipped in sturdy USPS Priority Mail boxes. Most items will come in the box that opens from the end, I selected that style because not having a seam on the top and bottom better protects items in bad weather. Knitted items are never sent in shipping bags because those bags can be damaged in transit.

Light weight items will be shipped by First Class Mail in padded envelopes.

After an item is listed for sale, it is carefully packaged in a clear view bag and sealed closed, to help protect it from damage in shipping to you. The order is wrapped in bubble wrap and placed into the container along with its pertinent paperwork. Box end flaps are tape sealed to further protect items in bad weather.
