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

Samples shown in Augustbird colourways ‘Beyond the Teapot’ and ‘Mulled Wine’.
