Solstice is named Solstice in honour of the summer solstice celebrated at Stonehenge in Wiltshire UK.
Wiltshire is a county in which a lot of UK crop circles appear, especially in the areas around ancient monuments like Stonehenge.
Every year thousands colourful pagans travel to the henge from all over the world, hence the rainbow colours.
Incidentally I’m not one of them, but I love the idea that they are so passionate that they are prepared to travel so far to see a sunrise.
Solstice measures 50 x 56 inches and is made with a thickish Merino wool, making the blanket soft and snuggly.
The yarn was hand dyed with natural plant dyes, so please keep the blanket out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
Handwash in hand hot water using a dishwashing detergent, if its too hot for your hands its too hot for the wool.
Solstice was made as the sample for the pattern which features in my book Rainbow Crochet Blankets
