This bespoke blend of merino laps and tops was created during a visit to a spinning friend in Broadlands - we joyfully added random coloured fibres to the drum carder and realised only after watching a Greater Spotted Woodpecker in the trees that we'd already made one... We duly split the fibre between us to see what we'd make - so here is 'The Broadlands Woodpecker', spun and knitted into a little pouch, perfect for holding those birdwatching binoculars ...or sunglasses..or a phone..Did we mention it’s reversible too? Choose between the plain side or the purl side!!
