Traditional crafts, warm drinks and the comfort of home all inspired this whimsical scarf. A little bit retro, with hints of macramรฉ and cross-stitch, Tannins glows in gorgeous White Gum Wool. Generous proportions, relaxing knitting and a cosy result โ€“ the perfect accompaniment to your cup of tea โ€ฆ or mulled wine. Wrap up in softness and sip away.

Samples shown in Augustbird colourways โ€˜Beyond the Teapotโ€™ and โ€˜Mulled Wineโ€™.
