Haapsalu shawl over 200 years old Estonian traditional lace shawl. Always knitted with fine wool, so you can pull the shawl through wedding ring. The skill has been handed down from mother to daughter, from one master knitter to another for one and half centuries.

Haapsalu, a small resort town on the west coast of Estonia, is famous for its 13th-century castle ruins, curative mud baths, and the legend of the White Lady. Created using lambs’ wool, the tradition started when members of the Russian aristocracy  including the royal Romanov family  visited the famous healing mud baths at the start of the 19th century. As they walked from the warm baths into the chilly courtyard outside, these women would fling a delicate shawl around their shoulders to keep warm.

Haapsalu shawl is something I am never able to knit, but I believe, that this  cake is the most easily baked pie in the world.
My grandmother did this using barley flour. But this is same delicious with wheat or whatever flour.
