Black and Silver Diamond Twill Throw
We love our New Zealand Halfbred yarn. Grown and spun locally, this yarn showcases the softness of Merino and the durability of Romney - NZ Halfbred and their cousins the Corriedale are some of the earliest cross breeds of sheep in New Zealand, bred especially for the hinterlands of the South Island.
I was able to make up two throws from a piece of black and silver cloth Rod wove earlier this year, finishing the edges with a fine zig-zag stitch.
These throws really are amazing - they are beautiful, durable, completely hand crafted here in Oamaru using locally sourced yarn - and very limited edition.
Yarn: NZ Halfbred (merino/romney cross) warp and weft
