Taking inspiration from a spectacular image of the Grand Canyon at dawn, Tanya of Pink Adobe Dyeworks created her Canyon Dawning colourway, managing to incorporate all the beautiful shades of this special place at dawn.

The Canyon Dawning shawl is a one skein delight, resulting in a lovely shawlette. Simple stockinette shows off the beautiful yarn, and textured eyelets nod to the rocky landscape of our muse and the channel within.

Originally designed as a charity fundraising pattern for the 2023 Two Sheeps Calendar, with 100% of the proceeds taken from April 2023 to March 2024 pattern sales raising AUD $4608 for Ambah’s chosen charity; Worawa Aboriginal College

From Wowara:
“Hello Ambah,
All of us at Worawa Aboriginal College would like to thank-you for your kind donations.
With your help we can continue to close the gap for our Aboriginal girls and help them walk in both worlds confidently.
We love your Canyon Dawning shawl design, the colours are remnant of Kings Canyon here in Australia as you would know. Our Elder in Residence, Aunty Lois Peeler is very impressed with the shawl, exclaiming, “I want one!”. If it was already made, she would have purchased right there and then. We wish you well with your continued pattern sales. “

We have now arranged a day for me to gift her my Canyon Dawning Shawl.
