Growing up in Ireland, I was very aware of the importance of wrapping up in winter time. My Granny Hill always warned us of the perils of going out with wet hair and braving the elements without a hat. So it isn’t surprising that she spent many hours knitting us fabulous jumpers, hats and indeed whole outfits in 100% pure new wool.
I share my granny’s desire to keep everyone wrapped up – its important to feel cosy and warm in winter time – there is nothing worse than being cold.
So this one of the motivations behind my First Frost scarves – chunky wool tweed lined with cotton poplin which is soft against your skin. I want to wrap everyone up so they are equipped for the outdoors this winter!
