Hawold grew out of a love of Owls, Yorkshire and spinning.
He is knitted from hand spun yarn from Ryeland sheep bred in Yorkshire.
His name is based on a specific Yorkshire dialect where haitches are placed where there h’are none – as in Hawold the Howl. And his friend Harnon.
Crafts have been shown to be good for mental wellbeing.
We wanted to combine all these things.
We would love you to knit a friend for Hawold. Name him or her and take them on your travels. Please post pictures of your owl and share positive messages. Help us all make this world a better place and improve mental health.
