Take up knitting and connect with your inner calm with a Perriam Knit Kit. The kits are designed for beginners and beyond, using Perriam super-chunky merino wool made in New Zealand, and available in five wonderful shades inspired by the Central Otago landscape. For Perriam designer Christina Perriam, knitting is a form of meditation and working with a sustainable fibre such as merino makes it even more mindful. “Growing up on Bendigo Station, I have so many wonderful memories of knitting in front of the fire with Mum. Even though she’s not with us anymore, I feel a responsibility to share my love for knitting and New Zealand merino with the world,” she says.
