Throughout the South, from the yards of low-country cottages, to the grounds of lavish antebellum mansions, to the swampy bayous of Biloxi and the Gulf Coast, oak trees are dressed up for a garden party with their streamers of curly Spanish moss. Stirring gently in a welcome breeze, the moss shifts from green to silvery gray and back again. The tendrils catch the summer rain, adding a magical little shimmer to the surface.
This lightweight boa is as gossamer as a spider web and will flutter gracefully in the slightest breeze. A touch of silk in the yarn gives the barest shimmer, reminiscent of the tiny drops of rain captured by the moss and glistening in the sun. Wear it and create your own bit of a stir.
