The month of November is when the cold winds begin to blow and marks the beginning of winter. It is also a month where we celebrate “Thanksgiving”, a national holiday in the U.S. It is a holiday of giving thanks and celebration with family and friends. The holiday also reminds me of pumpkin, apple pies, and piping hot cider to keep the chill away.
This post highlights several shawl wraps that I have eco-dyed with the following botanical: eucalyptus polyanthemos, eucalyptus cinerea, and casuarina pine needles on wool. These shawls will keep me warm and cozy this time of the year.
