Poppycock! is a dramatic shawl reminiscent of a peacock's tail. Beginning with a cluster of small feathers, it continues through sections of ever-growing feathers, ending with a flourish of large feathers along the outer edge. Classic Elite's Silky Alpaca Lace in 2466 "Midnight Forest" is the perfect yarn for this feathery wrap.
