Kenyan kikoy: Go bright or subtle. Wear as a wrapper or cover a cushion pad on your garden bench.

NEW Kenyan kikoy just arrived: more than just a wrapper

Our Kenya supply chain has come through again: thanks, Gretchen.

Bob was photographing yesterday and today - presto! - some great new kikoy are on the website NOW.

We never leave home without a couple of these soft, versatile cloths in our bag. They're multi-colour and very multi-use.

  • Comfortable wrapper... Check.
  • Picnic or beach blanket... Of course.
  • Shawl or scarf... Certainly.
  • Table cloth or runner... Absolutely.
  • Wallhanging... Why not?
  • Or use your imagination!

NEW limited edition threads

Putting together our limited edition fabric packs is heaps of fun. Experimenting with new ideas is what it's all about.

So we've just added some very limited edition packs of hand-dyed Perle number 8 embroidery threads to complement the fabric  packs.  These are special colours that are not in regular production and not on our Chameleon Hand-dyed Threads page.

What's in a limited edition thread pack?

  • 20 complementary colours
  • approximate skein length: 16 metres
  • includes 2 skeins free!
