From the Karoo

Blankets with heart

The story behind these blankets really have touched our hearts here at Bubbadue, and here’s why…
A remarkable lady called Ros Bechet, while driving through the Karoo, witnessed alarming poverty and unemployment especially among the local women.

By providing needles, patterns and Merino wool, which has been sheared from the very sheep that surround these ladies in the Karoo, Ros has been a catalyst in making a way for the local women to generate an income and experience feelings of achievement and being valued.

The products of this incredible initiative? The most beautiful blankets, knitted with ‘heart’.

When you make a purchase of any of these heirloom blankets, you are not only wrapping a baby in warmth, but in a little bit of Africa too.
