Beautiful Soft Lamb’s Wool
Palliser Ridge Lamb’s Wool is grown right here in South Wairarapa. The soft lamb’s wool is perfect for blankets, cardigans and jerseys, scarves, hats and much more. Natural colour and 8 ply, it comes in a hefty 1.25kg cone size (retails for $70) and 100g ball (retails for $10).
Adding to the variety of beautiful, hand-crafted items available for purchase in Wairarapa are a group called Martinborough Makers. The ‘Makers’ are an informal group of artists and creators who produce a variety of ceramic, textile and wooden pieces to sell at markets and ‘pop-ups’.
The group held a very successful pop-up in July, but watch out for their glorious wares at markets and pop-ups over summer. The next pop up event is planned for November 18 at Cuckoo in Greytown. More information about can be found on the Facebook page @MartinboroughMakers.
