This classic shoulder wrap is made of 100% woven wool. The band at the bottom of this wrap is reminiscent of a "Crios" belt. The traditional Crios was made of hand-woven wool of several colors and shades. The Irish Crios survived well into the twentieth century, worn by the people of the Aran Islands. Shorter Crios now are popular as hand-fasting cords, both in religious and secular weddings. This wool throw wrap maintains the timeless elegance of Irish traditions from the past.
