Some new Kiwiana fabrics and wool

While in New Zealand I wanted to get some Kiwiana fabrics and some New Zealand wool.

This time I bought fabric designs that would hopefully suit the boys a bit more.

Just loving this selection.

The wools I bought will hopefully match the various outfits I hope to make that will be available to purchase.  
They are a combination of New Zealand Merino, Alpaca and Possom.

The wool is very soft and beautiful to knit with.  

I managed to knit a few sweaters that will form part of  complete outfits eventually.

Rory is modelling a sweater made from the variegated blues.

I love how it brings out the blue in his eyes.

James is wearing a cardigan made from New Zealand Merino - a more rugged wool and a slightly larger fit.  Still  to have the buttons sewn on.

Back to Rory again in another NZ Merino, Alpaca and Possom mix - this time variegated greens which also suit him with his red hair.

Stevie is wearing a pretty cardigan made with the variegated mauves.  Again this is waiting for the buttons to be sewn on.


Lastly, Henry wanted a green cardigan to go with some of his clothing so I made this one (not NZ yarns)


  1. Lovely colours! I do like the prints you have from there, especially the bird ones.
    Still keep getting cut off part way through my emails to you and have been shut out of the Yahoo groups again - it is sooooo frustrating. Love your new dog but so sad for you re Pirate. Still trying to contact directly but will get our IT man in if it doesn't stop by Monday.

  2. Looks like your Kiwiana materials and New Zealand wools are well and truly stocked up again!

  3. Wonderful sweaters and bright and pretty fabrics too! I look forward to see how you use them in your creations :)
