The hearth; the heart of the home, the heat source, the meeting place, where work and family come together. The safe place, the happy place, the place of belonging and simplicity. The stories told and food prepared around the hearth are what make a house a home; nothing cozies it up like some knitting. This particular unisex wrap grows slowly but deliberately. It’s both soft and reliable and embodies all the qualities of hearth, heart, and home.
