Stardust Gypsum

Stardust gypsum is commonly known as baby’s breath, and it is one of those delicately understated blooms that makes everything next to it look more lovely. With colors reminiscent of the beautiful dried blooms for which it is named, this cowl will give you warmth all winter long. The design has a delicate flower pattern circling throughout the cowl that will frame your face beautifully.
