Gillyflower £3.75

A cozy slip-stitch chunky cowl, perfect for the northern winters, in the many pretty colours of the gillyflower.

Gillyflowers are hardy but romantic flowers with dainty frilled petals and silvery stems. They are frequently used in nosegays and posies for their lovely clove-nutmeg scent and gentle colours. They like growing on rocky ground and flower briefly in summer.
