Verdon is knit with Rosy Green Wool’s Marino d’Arles yarn, and was inspired by the seasonal migration of this traditional sheep breed between the Alpine meadows and protected valleys like the stunning Verdon Gorge.
It’s a generous rectangular shawl knit from four different colors, using short rows to seamlessly combine textures like stripes and lace into a garment that captures the steep lines and beautiful color play of the Verdon Gorge itself.
