Made in East Brunswick by Veteran Scarves, this lovely design was inspired by the famous poem 'In Flanders Fields' by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.
Back when Veteran Scarves first started knitting, Brunswick was the centre of Melbourne’s textile industry. Nowadays things have changed and hardly anyone knits in Australia. Companies chasing cheaper prices moved their production and jobs overseas. The Veteran Scarves family has been knitting in Brunswick for half a century now and They’re not about to stop. Like a good family recipe, Veteran Scarves knits are constantly being tweaked and perfected. Every great recipe warrants the best tools, and Veteran Scarves have an amazing collection of knitting machinery, enough to document the last century of knitted history.
The Remembrance Poppy Flanders Fields Scarf is proudly made in Brunswick East Victoria, and is endorsed by the Victoria RSL.
