Counter Balance


Designed by Deb Barnhill.

Rarely have two lace patterns played so nicely together. Open and airy o-shaped lace mingles side-by-side with a simple slant repeat, with one pattern growing from the left while the other diminishes to the right. Deceptively straightforward, surprisingly intuitive and dangerously addictive, the simplicity shines through in this handpainted merino, silk and SeaCell® blend. Wear it as a wide scrunchy scarf or as a delicate wrap, pinned to frame your shoulders.
