So, in case you don’t knit, there’s plenty of opportunities to wrap up warm for Autumn. Inspired by wool week, I’ve just agreed to go on a monthly knitting meetings with some friends. If you have any patterns or helpful ideas on where to start, please let me know! Share the love for knitting and Happy Wool Week!
In collaboration with lovely shop MamaOwl we are giving away an essential 2-piece set in silk/wool, in sizes up to 12 years.
Wool and silk is great all year around, worn as a thermal base layer in winter and on warmer days on it’s own. Wool and silk is also perfect for nightwear. Wool helps regulating the body temperature and it can absorb much more liquid than cotton, keeping your little one comfortable and dry.
Post updated Monday 14th October 2013: Competition is now closed and the winner of the giveaway is announced!
