There’s nothing like the snuggle-factor of pure vintage New Zealand wool in winter, and it’s also the perfect thing to keep hot water bottles safely covered for the kids – or you! Felt maker Adventures of Alex O & Co has a truly gorgeous range of hottie covers decorated with all sorts of cute characters (and equally snuggly and cute cushion covers too!) so we reckon they’re the perfect way to stay cosy until the end of the colder months.
Give yourself the gift of snug warm hands this winter, or snap these gorgeous gold woollen gloves from Maggie Js up as a lovely present for someone special. Super smart, hand knitted, and with a sweet bow detail, these medium-fit gloves are sure to please.
Get started on your winter knits for the kids with a gorgeous pattern from Honeycakes (Lisa Flett Design). Lisa says: “I am passionate about knitting and the process of design and creating. I love pattern, texture and colour. Inspiration comes from everywhere – from fashion stores, magazines, books, museums, art galleries and landscape – inspired by the beauty that is New Zealand.”
The Christchurch Arts Centre is the place to be this Friday and Saturday, when the Midwinter Carnival brings locals and visitors together to warm hearts and minds by celebrating our many cultures.
There’s nothing like pure natural merino wool for warmth and comfort, especially for your wee ones. The talented husband and wife team of Wrapt in Merino specialise in gorgeous baby clothing, accessories and blankets using this gorgeous fibre, having first made them for their own baby.

Mmm, lovely, light, warm and snuggly merino. We can’t get enough of it and we love the range of stylish merino scarves available from Silvereye this season.
Just the thing for chilly mornings – a gorgeous infinity scarf from Marian Smale in upcycled, unused fabric remnants. Soft, cosy and so very chic.
