seasonal shift summer

It's high summer and the harvest is underway. The light lingers long into the evening, swifts scream overhead, and insects, drunk on nectar, loop drowsily from flower to flower. This yarn collection takes its inspiration from the farmland and meadows that surround us, the stunning sunsets, and the feeling that we'd love this moment to last forever...

"The low, drowsy hum of a bee drifts on the breeze, rising and falling as the sun burns, bright and orange through his drooping eyelids. He can feel the familiar scratch of straw stubble on the back of his neck, the stalks bent and broken, faded yellow, anchored in the cracked soil, the sharp, sweet smell in his nostrils. He imagines the farm labourers drinking bottles of cider through barley straws after a long day baling, when it was still back-breaking manual labour

The drone of the insect phases in and out with the sensation of his blood coursing – whoomp, whoomp, whoomp. His daughter’s sing-song voice cutting through the soothing, soporific buzz."
