Keep Cosy and Carry On!

As temperatures drop, it’s tempting to start closing windows, but remember, letting the outdoors in is one of the important things for limiting the risk of Covid-19 in buildings. The latest Communications and Participation fundraiser has arrived just in time to help you keep warm! Our new range of handmade wraps can be worn over the shoulders, bundled around as a scarf or draped over your lap. Available in a range of colours and costing only £15, they are washable, pretty and practical. They are also only one of a kind. We have 8 available for sale and once they are gone, they’re gone!


The wraps are generous in size and are the perfect way to add an extra layer over a jumper, jacket or even your coat. They have a triangular shape, so can also can also be worn as a chunky, bandana-style scarf, or opened up and used as a handy lap blanket. Each wrap comes in an organza pouch, so it’s really easy to roll it up and carry it in a handbag or slip into a desk drawer.

Each wrap is unique. The descriptions and images below will tell you more about the colours and yarns. All wraps are machine washable on a delicate cycle.
