Named after a sweet little sheep that lives on Tarndwarncoort homestead, the Tanzy Shawl is a celebration of wool! The shawl makes for a great travel project as you can relax with garter stitch and pops of easy eyelet stripes while you’re away chatting with friends, then knit the beautiful rippling border when you return home. If you haven’t used Polwarth wool before, why not try it for your project? It’s lovely and soft, yet with the most glorious rustic feel!
