I’m chuffed to bits (very excited) 

This  beanie knitting pattern has caught the eye of Nadia Lim and is featured in the Winter Edition of her lifestyle magazine, a superb publication which champions the very best of New Zealand. This beanie ticks all the boxes…it’s simple to knit, it uses NZ natural, dye free wool, available in Cream or Walnut, and is topped off with a very ‘eco friendly’ possum fur pom pom

We have also made this beanie in our latest Wild Earth Eden,  a pure New Zealand Wool available in some fabulous shades. Our shop sample is shown in Pistatio, the softest of glacial greens.

Materials2 balls of Natural 8 ply wool or Wild Earth Eden. Simple, honest and sustainable wool, grown and spun in Canterbury, New Zealand.
