Fairy Pool Ombre Turquoise Blue Shawl - FREE SHIPPING SH74

Regular price $89.95

Inspired by the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands, I designed this lacy shawl. Pale turquoise at the neck cascading into deep (almost navy) blue at the border, the lace pattern is almost scalloped, like ripples in the pond.

The Isle of Skye, located on Scotland’s west coast, is an amazing landscape of grassy knolls, scenic hillsides, rock formations, and castles, where fairy folklore abounds. Almost everywhere you turn, there is a place that looks as if it were a secret gathering spot for magic creatures, and there is usually a bit of local folklore to back that up. The Fairy Pools are a series of waterfalls, with amazing crystal clear pools. The theme song from the Outlander television series, The Skye Boat Song, played in the opening of the Outlander television series, invokes the mystery and superstition of the Scottish 18th century people.

"I knocked the heel of my hand against my head, trying to smack the superstition out of it. Live with Highlanders long enough, and every damn rock and tree meant something!
---Claire in Fiery Cross,” Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon
