Tisbury Wrap

Tisbury WrapMartha's Vineyard is such a great place.  Each part of the island has its own charm - from Bohemian Vineyard Haven and happenin' Oak Bluffs, to the very tony Edgartown. We spent a week last year at my brother and sister-in-law's place right in the middle of the Vineyard - West Tisbury.  From this comfortable and woodsy spot you can take a walk in the morning, play on the beach all day, and have dinner at a smart little restaurant.  But you'll need something over your shoulders because when the sun goes down on Martha's Vineyard, it can be downright chilly - even in July.  The Tisbury Wrap is made of buttery soft Inca Eco cotton so it's lovely to knit and cuddly against your skin.  The wrap is a perfect excuse to show off a spectacular bridge closure and makes it chic enough even for Edgartown.
