Lolancha Shawl is knit with Manchelopis, an unspun yarn from the Manchega Sheep in Spain. This yarn creates a fabric that is lofty, warm, and light; perfect for a winter shawl! There are tricks to working with this unique yarn, and the pattern includes a video to teach you how!

Yarn to knit Lolancha is available in my shop!

Lolancha Shawl is boomerang shaped and starts at the tip. The left edge of the shawl has a textured slipped stitch that runs along the edge. The shawl is finished off with a border that utilizes this same stitch.
