Daddy Cool Rolags - 100g

Only 3 left in stock



Why Daddy Cool? Seahorses along with their close relatives Sea Dragons and Pipefish as the only class of animals where the male gives birth to young. During the courtship dance, the fale deposits her eggs into the male abdomen pouch. He then fertilises and gestates the young. Finally muscles in the pouch will contract, expelling the young into the environment. It is theorised that seahorses do this to allow more offspring to be produced - as the female can now go and depost more eggs with other males.

This inspiration photograph is of a Black Seahorse (Hippocampus Javanicus) taken in the Red Sea.

I loved the interactions of the blue and burgundy shades in this photograph. The rolags are made of superfine merino, merino and mulberry silk.

The merino will felt, if you do not wish it to, hand wash in cool water.
