Russian Shawl

This is the shawl I bought in a street market in St. Petersburg. They were available in most street markets, but this was larger and had a more intricate pattern. I was able to bargain the price from about $27 down to $24. This was a big day for me as I am not a bargainer. Not only did I do it, but I had to do it fast as the bus was being loaded.
It is made from the "wool from a goat" so is very soft and warm. I wore it the evening we went to the Russian Ballet and saw Swan Lake-an exquisite production!
