Lace knit wedding shawls

Traditionally, in the UK, wedding knits were often done in delicate, super-fine wool.  The old adage is that a wedding shawl should be so fine that you can draw it through a wedding ring, without it getting caught.  These are beautiful, but also very different from the original photos you sent me.  What do you think?
