Ngaire is a kiwi legend in the wool world. We contacted Ngaire in 2018 to ask her the year she designed this gorgeous coat. She told us her son wore the first coat and he was heading to get his pension. As of the year 2021 the pattern is 68 years young and still a kiwi favourite. She had many stories to tell of her years working in the knitting community.
