Whether you call her Nana, Grammy, Nonna, Oma, Abuela, – there is no one quite like your Grandma. She’s there with gentle touches, warm cookies and the soft scent of lavender and talc. This shawl is inspired by vintage afghan throws that all our mothers and grandmothers seemed to have during those far off golden tinged days. Let go of the hustle of the day, snuggle in with your favourite cuppa and let your mind drift away to those amber autumn days.
