Just south of the Texan fields where the goats and sheep that supply Piper’s fibers graze, once flourished several rich Mesoamerican cultures. One of the best-known imprints these civilizations left behind were the stairstep temples made famous by the Mayans and Aztecs. A distinctive shape that lends itself well to knitted shawl construction.
