Monkey Wrap

Long time no blogpost, for which I apologise. However Mum has been busy knitting up a storm with her lovely new yarn from her recent visit to the Shetland Islands. This project is a cosy wrap, perfect for an added layer for the Autumn months. The olive/russet tones are the perfect for the season too!

This beautiful yarn is hand-dyed and hand spun by resident Shetland textile designer and wool expert, Niela Nell. Comprised mainly of olive green wool, with a middle section made of rich silky wool, interlaced with multi-coloured ribbon. The edging has been knitted using  a gorgeous silk and alpaca wool.

The pattern is available on for £4.00 (or $6.00).

The blue colour in the images appear a deeper, more royal blue in real life.
