Louise says “

Call me crazy, but I really love autumn and winter, mainly for the skies and light.

I was lucky to grow up in a coastal town called Bangor, in Northern Ireland. Not that I appreciated it at the time, but it was a lovely place with a lot of parks and a marina and we lived a stone’s throw from the beach.

My mum and dad still live there and I have to admit that I get jealous of my dad’s morning walks with Lola the dog along Ballyholme beach. He took the inspiration photo for this colourway.

Shepherd’s Delight is a gorgeous semi-solid sock weight yarn that is inspired by clouds kissed by an autumnal sun “
