gradiant colour scarf

My great nana always knitted us scarves, made from this beautiful fluffy wool which came in different graduated colours. There were always slightly too many colours but we loved and wore them anyway, bright pinks and yellows with terracotta and colours of disintegrating leaves. 

The wool stopped being manufactured around the time of her death (she was very old, in her nineties) which makes them all the more special. 

My mother, older sister and I all had different scarves made by her which suited us best but I’m sure we gained one almost every time we went to visit her in her captivating, timeless house in Devon.
