The colours of this huge wool hug are inspired by the colours of Gwent in winter; the rust red colour of the hillsides, broken up by green sheep grazing, brown patches of felled forest and sometimes the grey cloud is so low you can’t even see the landscape.
The cables cut across the fabric on the bias, which makes the wrap interesting to make.
Why not pick your colours inspired by your landscape, your hair colour, to match your favourite winter coat, or best pyjamas. The Milarrochy Tweed yarn comes in 18 shades; the speckles create an interesting look, and the cables to come out crisp against the background.
