Portinscale Pattern

Portinscale is from the Waves collection, which originally featured The Fibre Co.’s Road to China blend.  When the lace weight version was discontinued, we reimagined this beautiful lightweight shawl in our Meadow blend.  Waves is a collection of six shawl designs from three inspiring women, two each from Melanie Berg (Mairlynd), Hiroko Payne (The Hare and the Crow) and Helen Stewart (Curious Handmade).  The shawls were originally photographed on the dramatic shores of Derwentwater in the English Lake District on the pier of the Lingholm Estate, a country estate connected to Beatrix Potter who spent time there on holiday and is known to have written Squirrel Nutkin at Lingholm. This reimagined version in our Meadow yarn was modeled at The Fibre Co.’s HQ by Janett Walker, co-founder of Antiracist Cumbria.
