About the Shawl

This shawl is an homage to Natalie’s Gaelic roots and a journey though the legends of the Maighdeann-ròin. Also known as a selkie, in Gaelic lore a Maighdeann-ròin is a seal maiden caught on land against her will and taken as a wife when her seal skin is stolen away from her and carefully hidden by her husband so that she may never return to her true home the sea. Caught between land and sea as though trapped in a net, she forever searches for her seal skin until one day years later her children reveal its location to her. She acts without hesitation and immediately runs to the ocean shore, dons her skin and returns to the depths of the sea, forever after watching over her heartbroken human family from amidst the frothy white-capped churning ocean waves offshore.

Maighdeann-ròin is a three-colour, crescent-shaped shawl, worked from the top down,incorporating textures, stripes, lace short rows, and feather-and-fan waves, finished with a picot bind-off. This is a fun knit, with limitless colour combinations and constantly ever changing like the sea itself. A tribute to your own wild woman of the sea.
