Launching this design by Swansea Bay Yarns!
When I embarked on, what I’ve come to call my Tequila Sunrise Scarf – I just wanted to play with the hot shades in Rowan’s Kid Silk Haze then decided to throw in the zing of the Tangerine Fine Lace and as I'm really happy with result - I wanted to share it with you.
Initially inspired by the work of artists Frida Kahlo and Franz Marc, early favourites of mine. I am now adding further choices of colourways by artists that I enjoy (although I don't pretend to be any sort of connoisseur!) as a palette for this luxurious, sensuous scarf/stole/wrap!
*A copy of the guidelines on how to construct this piece is included in the pack. Can be knitted on 6mm/6.5mm/7mm needles.
Each pompom comes with a Tapestry Needle and button to secure the pompom.
The button supplied as part of the pack comes from a South African button company that aims to bring work and new skills to the women of that region. Due to a unique manufacturing process, the buttons are both machine washable and dry cleanable. Each button is carefully hand crafted from a unique mixture of ceramic and stoneware clay and hand painted with an assortment of glazes. The use of natural materials as opposed to plastic, has proven itself to be extremely popular within an increasingly environmentally conscious market.
