"Cozy warmth, beauty in design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This alpaca shawl is truly a work of art, expertly made. I am a tall woman and it is perfect size for me as I like shawls that are a little longer. Actually, I bought 2 of these shawls, one in beige and one in rust. They are very warm also! Only drawback is that alpaca sheds a lot but they are so pretty and warm, I use them all the time. Thank you Marinella Asto!

"Unexpected Surprise"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This ochre shawl was meant to be a gift for a woman. However, the man that was to be trusted to give it to the woman kept it. he claimed it matched his decor and used it decoratively in many ways listed below. I am glad he liked it that much. But, I would have liked to keep it myself. I did pay for it. Needless to say, this is a really beautiful piece of art that can be very covertly coveted by others.

"Gorgeous Poncho!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Marianella does such beautiful work! My mom used to crochet and she made me and my twin sister red ponchos when we were really little. I always LOVED that red poncho, so I have been wanting a grown up one for a long time. Crochet is such a lost art now in the US. I am so glad to see that artisans like Marianella are still practicing it and creating gorgeous treasures like my red Continents poncho. Im happy that my purchase makes a difference for her. I cant wait until another is in stock so I can get one for my twin sister.
