Betwixt Shawl by Ambah O'Brien | A shawl to keep you cozy when the veil between the two worlds is at its thinnest. In honor of our place in the cycle of life and death, Betwixt contrasts a floral mosaic pattern edged with delicate lace featuring a skull motif. In the Northern hemisphere this time of Halloween reflects the darkening of days and the final harvest before winter sets in, whereas in the Southern Hemisphere Halloween falls as spring is bursting forth and our days are filled with light and new life.
