Spin a Scarf of Sunshine by Dawn Casey and Still Lim
Nari lives on a small farm with hens and bees and apple trees and cares for a little lamb of her own. The seasons turn and Nari's lamb grows into a fine sheep with a fleece that is ready to shear. Nari and her family use traditional skills to transform the fleece into a cosy scarf, as they shear, spin, dye and knit. But as Nari grows older her beloved scarf becomes tattered, it is ready to be recycled into compost for the farm with the help of some friendly worms.
Spin a Scarf of Sunshine is a simple, lyrical story that encourages young children to engage with the wool cycle and understand the basics of traditional crafts of natural spinning, dyeing, knitting and gardening. The luminous illustrations of the natural world will inspire children and adults alike to explore the simple beauty around them and connect them to the idea of sustainable living and knowing where our clothing comes from.
