This week we had our winter solstice and longest night here in New Zealand. We have also been celebrating Matariki with the return of the Pleiades constellation to our wintery night sky.
I got quite inspired by all this twinkly business so I made a scarf to celebrate. It’s mainly merino and alpaca in shades of blue, charcoal and black – with a bit of silk and a funny shiny man-made thread called ‘ladder yarn’. It’s lightweight, soft and has a subtle colour changes running along the length of it.
