In my perpetual search for a stylish wool shawl, I found a real gem in the Jewel Silk Scarves line (pun intended). And in an interesting coincidence, they are also located in Connecticut! Sometimes you can literally search the world for a product, and it is in your own backyard!
I am always on the lookout for a stylish shawl for two reasons. First, this time of year is unpredictable in temperature. It isn’t quite full winter coat season, but you definitely need something to keep you warm. Second, the building manager in my office building keeps the temperature at near-artic temperature all year long. A few of the women in the office drape blankets over themselves when they are at their desks. I prefer a more stylish approach, so I am thrilled to have found the Jewel Silk Scarves Jamevar Tan Wool Poncho.
I was unfamiliar with the Jamevar technique of weaving before researching it a bit. It involved labor-intensive, deeply intricate designs. This gorgeous shawl has a paisley pattern, but it is so incredibly detailed. It is incredible that is it handmade!
When it comes to wool items, I tend to get itchy pretty fast, and this is true of Merino Wools. This particular wool is hypoallergenic: I wore it all day, and it was as soft and comfortable as could be! I loved being warm and not breaking out in hives. I wore it with a simple black dress, and the texture of the weave really made it into a statement outfit. I opted to not wear a necklace because the way the weave falls is so gorgeous around the neckline. It is reversible, too!
While the front of the item is open like a shawl, the amount of fabric is luxuriously ample like a poncho. It is the best of both worlds if you are looking for a stylish wrap!
I am thrilled to have found this gorgeous and versatile shawl. It works with office wear, jeans and a fitted cashmere tee, and formal wear. It is truly a piece of wearable art!
