Gallipoli 8ply Supporting the New Zealand RSA. 100g balls
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives...you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and Mehmets to us where they lie side by side in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives in this land they have become our sons as well."
A collaboration between New Zealand and and Turkey, this ANZAC inspired yarn is an ode to war-time knitting. High quality, economic and practical. The colour palette includes Khaki, Air Force and Poppy. A proportion of the money from sales of this yarn is donated to the RSA.
