Treat yourself or someone special to our Summer Solstice Box! We have curated this box with beautiful things we would love on a summer morning while we wonder at the fact that a New Year is upon us. Summer is both busy and restful, both joyous and poignant.

Our Finest Boxes contain:

A beautiful handmade ceramic bud vase by local-to-me ceramics artist Andrina Wright of AW Pottery.  These bud vases are a pop of colour themselves and will hold a small posy of cut flowers or greenery.  Each piece is handmade, unique and tactile with beautiful decorative glazes. These are a real treat!

A Haigh’s milk chocolate heart, a few Tea Tonic teas and a tiny beaded stitch marker.

A gorgeous Tuft Woolens Sock Soap bar of natural wool wash. We imported these especially for this box! This time we have a few scents but they are all fresh and clean delicious mixes of honey, lavender, herbs and fruit.

A hand dyed skein of Gathering Cashmere Sock yarn in the colour Blazin’  which was designed to complement Andrina’s beautiful pottery glaze colours.

Our new Gathering Cashmere Sock yarn is a blend of 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon. We have never carried an “MCN” base before we found this 2 ply bouncy yarn with a good tight twist. This yarn would make the most brilliant luxurious socks or shawl which will last far longer than other cashmere blends that are too fragile. We love this new yarn and hope you do too.

Gathering Cashmere Fingering is 399 yards/365 m per 100g skein
