I’d been picturing this in Baskerville or Ramble, wooly like the original sample. Above are three shades in Baskerville Exmoor Blueface, British Gotland and Silk I was considering.
For the Ramble, my small-batch British-reared Romney / Shetland, I was hoping for a truly rustic feel to the lace, even more woolly than Laine’s sample.
But now after seeing Josiane’s amazing version in Isington I am torn. Do I go rustic, or super elegant? Can you imagine it in the three hues I’ve shown with hers above – Siren Call, Kelp or Nori? All three are restocked in the shop, which doesn’t help! Such a tough choice.
