The geometric motif and dusky palette of the Auna shawl evoke a sunset hitting a high desert cliff. Knit with Vale, a laceweight yarn spun from 100% USA-grown Rambouillet wool, Auna’s simple garter-stitch triangles strike the perfect balance of whisper-soft drape and enduring springiness.

Each triangle is shaped with simple yarnovers and worked separately. After seaming, the border is picked up around the edge and knit in the round.
