Finding quality time with mum.
There’s nothing better than a warm hug from your Mum. With Mother’s Day approaching, spending quality time and making those special moments together is the best gift you can give.
This Mother’s Day, Waverley Mills have teamed up with some of our favourite design, style and creative superstars, and we’re so excited to highlight our gorgeous product range made with our finest quality wool and alpaca, all crafted lovingly right here in Tasmania. They’ve shared with us some special moments and hopes for Mother’s Day, as well as their top Waverley Mills picks for treating Mum this year.
How do you plan on spoiling mum this year?
Interior stylist, designer and author Jason Grant knows beautiful interiors, and knows that “It’s important to make your mum feel special even from afar. Make the time and be present and for her to know she is loved and appreciated. Since my mum doesn’t live close by, any time with her is treasured… so simple things and slow times are great, like meals together and lots of chats.”
His ultimate gift this Mother’s Day is a cosy blanket for bed or the sofa by the fire, and his pick is our dreamy Alpaca Throw Cloud - a stunning sky blue throw with a beautifully soft touch, perfect for getting cosy on the couch.
Instagram darling floral designer Hattie Molloy says “This year I want to make mum feel extra special as she has done so much for me these past few months. My sister has an intellectual disability so mum has a lot on her plate between the two of us! The most important thing is to spend time together. But too also have a few pressies to spoil her with.”
Her perfect pick for spoiling Mum is our Alpaca Brights Throw, a generously sized and brilliantly bright throw made with luxurious brushed alpaca wool.
Fashion and lifestyle queen Ally May Carey says that “Quality time with my mum means long chats about everything, her showing me her new knitting designs and talking about what she’s making next. I love hearing old stories and about our family history, while going through photos! We also share recipes and Etsy shops we love all the time, which is one of my favourite things.”
Her gift pick is our sustainable and stylish Upcyled Maxi Grid Throw made with 70% reclaimed wool, lightly brushed and wonderfully soft to touch, perfect for those cosy evenings.
As mother's what does your perfect Mother's Day look like?
Content creator and model Jasmyne Summerfield will be enjoying this Mother’s Day “like I get to spend all of my days- with my family. I’m looking forward to a hot cup of tea in bed while snuggling my babies, eating a cooked breakfast at the table together and heading out on a little road trip to explore and play. We’ll find somewhere to picnic for lunch and take a nap, then watch the sun set with dinner in one hand, a wine in the other, and probably a few kids in my lap or climbing on my back.”
Her perfect pick is our Merino Contemporary Classic Throw in Almond, both beautiful and practical with a classic gingham check. “ I love how versatile this throw is- it comes with us wherever we go. We are almost always either out and about wandering through all the natural beauty that we’re surrounded by here in the Deep South, or snuggled up under it at home watching the rain fall outside the windows. It transitions from a picnic blanket to a couch companion seamlessly with a modern take on a classic colour and pattern.”
Sadly I live too far away from my Mum to be able to spend a lot of time with her so our quality time is spent over the phone or facetiming. We used to travel back to France once a year and I would spend the whole summer with her and the rest of our family but with Covid we haven’t been able to go for three years. My mum will be with us in Australia this Mother’s Day though and it makes me sooo happy!”
Margaux’s pick is our Ombre Alpaca Throw, with beautiful neutral grey tones weaved with soft and luxurious Australian Alpaca.
Show Mum how much you appreciate her love and warmth this year with the gift of high quality, luxuriously soft and gorgeous style from Waverley Mills.
