There is something romantic and sinister about the mermaid. She pulls you in with song, then wraps around you like seaweed. This piece is named for one water-spirit, from a German fairy tale, who marries a mortal man to obtain a soul. The shawl uses a hand-dyed yarn with colors of the ocean and a lace pattern reminiscent of shells and seaweed.
