Walking home from the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens earlier this year Matt and I went a different way and found a new stand of trees. At least 2 of them print orange!
After eco dyeing this large shawl has been hemmed by hand in a feature colour. I like this very visible stitching as to my eye it frames the print.
The fabric is 100% merino wool jersey knit. I love it because it is so soft that a large shawl like this one can be bundled up around the neck like a normal scarf.
