Tui Wrap 1
I am so in love with this wrap that came off the loom only yesterday. It was inspired by the New Zealand Tui bird. We were in NZ in September and I just loved watching the Tui’s outside my mum’s kitchen window. I had forgotten how beautiful their birdsong is.
The Tui Wrap is a mid season/winter weight wrap in indigo, teal, brown, white and silver. It is a mix of silk, merino, tencel, acrylic and plus the polyester novelty yarns. It measures 208cm x 55cm (81 x 21 inches) with a 10cm fringe (4 inches). It is beautiful and soft, the acrylic yarn gives it a bit strength for easy care (gentle machine wash, dry flat) and the shimmer from the lurex strand in the teal merino yarn is subtle but eye catching.
