January Bird of the Month Club
10% of proceeds will be donated to WIRES wildlife rescue to help Australia.
I have always loved birds. Their feathers are so pretty. Every species has their own unique colors and traits. And birds can fly. I just thought it would be so neat to be able to escape to the quiet of the sky and just be free for a little while.
For January I am starting with the Australian Shelduck. When I saw this image of this duck, I knew I wanted to make some yarn to match these colors. I am excited about this yarn club as it will give me a reason to learn about birds from all over the world.
The Australian Shelduck can be found South Eastern and South Western parts of Australia. I want to donate to help out WIREs Wildlife rescue to offer some support for Australia with all the destruction they have faced with the fires.
The color is a mystery to me as well but it will be variegated and contain some or all of the colors of the bird's feather in the image. There might be some speckles.
