FFCT Wrap / Feather and Fan, Cables and Tulips
It is amazing how quickly the temperatures can fall as soon as the sun starts to go down, even on a warm summer's day. This is when a soft merino/cotton wrap can provide a most welcome extra layer.
The FFCT Wrap features tulip lace flowers topping tightly cabled stems and set onto a background of a slim Feather-&-Fan leaf pattern. Instructions are given for two different lengths so you can tailor the wrap to your own requirements.
