These high quality famous Russian woolen shawls are often called "wedding ring shawls," because, although quite large, a shawl knit in the traditional fashion can be pulled through a wedding ring because the knitting is so fine. These shawls are made from a blend of silk and indigenous goat fiber. The silk helps hold the shape of the lace, preventing it from needing to be blocked as often as it would without the silk.
