Use this shawl pin, handmade by me, to secure your knitted or crocheted shawl or scarf. Made from silver-coloured aluminium wire, it is lightweight and so will not drag your shawl or scarf out of shape. The shawl pin is in two parts – the decorative bit and the pin which you thread through your shawl or scarf. The pin is not very sharp, and so will not work well with a woven fabric, unless the fabric is very open.
Each shawl pin that I make is slightly different, but the one that you receive will be the one show in the first photograph. The one shown in the two photographs with the shawl is for illustrative purposes only, and may be of a different design. The shawl is NOT included in the listing.
The pin part is approximately 10 cm (4 inches) in length and is shown on a card measuring 10 cm by 10 cm (4 inches by 4 inches).
Your shawl pin will be presented on a hand-decorated card and enclosed in a cellophane bag, making it an ideal gift for shawl-wearer in your life. Or just treat yourself to a unique accessory to secure your own shawl or scarf!
The shawl pin will be packed in a rigid cardboard postal box with extra padding to protect it during transit.
I form the wire into shape and then work-harden it to make it more robust, although as with any object made from wire care must be taken not to bend it repeatedly which will cause it to snap!
