"Age of Brass and Steam" is an easy shawl, knit by over 9800 people. And it's a free pattern on Ravelry. We've done it in 2 different yarns, and modified the pattern slightly for both samples:

#1 is knit in Berroco's Folio Luxe, an alpaca blend infused with glittering metallic strands, for a subtle sheen, with 219 yards. Its a very fine fingering weight, so we knit with it held double, to make a quick-knitting shawl. Our sample used 4 skeins. This yarn is available in 6 colorways.

#2 is knit in Amano's Mayu, a blend of 60% royal alpaca, 20% cashmere, and 20% silk. This absolutely luscious yarn is spun and hand-dyed in Peru, and is available in several colorways. Our sample used 4 skeins and was knit with a size 7 needle. Can't wear wool - this yarn's for you!
