If you have been a long time customer of Circus Tonic Handmade you may remember our beautiful yarn and enamel pin collaborations with the illustrator and author Jess Racklyeft. Since we last collaborated with Jess she has gone on to publish many successful children’s books. Our latest collaboration is this enamel pin designed by Jess.

One of the most fabulous Australian butterflies is the Cairns Birdwing, or the Ornithoptera euphoria. Found in northeastern Australia, their favourite habitat is rainforest and they are Australia’s largest butterfly with a wingspan of up to 18cm.

We thought you would enjoy knitting this 100g skein of 75% merino 25% nylon Jubilee yarn inspired by the Cairns Birdwing and its tropical rainforest home into socks with this stunning enamel pin adorning your project bag.
