Taraxacum, a Summer shawl in Ortica 400

Finally  Summer has arrived! Sunlight warms us up, but we absolutely need a light protection from the  comfortable, refreshing and revitalizing evening breeze.

Nothing better than a shawlette in Ortica 400, a natural and extremely light yarn, in a wonderful Summer color, which reminds us the taraxacum flower. Color palette for Ortica is beautiful: choose your favourite one, clicking on the link above!
