The all-over lace pattern is really pretty. Delicate without being too much. And the sample had me searching for the yarn, which turns out to be really lovely.
Artisan is a wool and silk blend with lots of natural little silky slubs. Berroco calls this a dip dyed yarn, which I'm assuming gives it the subtle tonality.
The slubs and the color variations are more visible in some color ways than others, but they are all good.
The shawl that caught my attention is called Ceonothus, and it requires only four skeins of Artisan.
