Winter Colours

We have had an unusually cold winter in balmy Piggs Peak.  People always think our climate is cold amidst high mountains, but truthfully, we are on the edge of the Lowveld and we do not even get a frost.  However, this year parts of South Africa have been beset with snow and the cold winds have blown right in our direction. 

I need no excuse to wrap up warmly and a few layers of blankets is just the trick - be they mohair, wool or even cotton.  Natural fibres provide the best insulation whether layered on your bed or around your neck.
