Colours from the clearest blue skies, lemon sorbet sunrises, and psychedelic sunsets find their way on to stoles, thanks to the wizard weavers at The Yarn Story who seek inspiration from summer.

Characterised by contemporary designs that dip into our traditional Indian roots, The Yarn Story creates soft furnishings and fashion accessories for men and women, the newest of which are ultra-soft, breathable cotton stoles. Browse and these will float on by, woven in summer prints, peach blossoms and ocean stripes.

We bought our friend that last one for her birthday, and we think you should spring for the floral one to gift your BFF. Or really, just buy one for yourself. You'll find that The Yarn Story's stoles make for great companions on your travels, or even on day trips to the movie theatre. And while you're at the e-store, you can also shop pocket squares, cushion covers and geometric woven throws that will give your home all the right angles.
