It’s that time of year where you’re in search of the perfect father’s day gift, but we know it can be challenging. Particularly in these difficult times, finding that special something can be a head-scratching experience. Whether you’re in need of a last-minute gift or something that requires more thought, we’ve got you covered. Read on for our favourite gifts that we handpicked for Father’s day – we made sure to choose gifts that can be delivered; making it really easy to make it a special day this year!
If you want to stand out and show your Dad how much you care this Father’s Day, then you have to get a hold of Wrapt Knitwear’s exclusive men’s collection.
The collection focuses on tried and tested staples, each with a twist: a merino wool crewneck with a subtle bit of contrast colour around the neck; a cardigan with colour blocking elements; a long-sleeved tee made elegant by the texture of linen yarn. The use of natural, sustainable fibres has obvious ecological underpinnings, but it is as much for the sake of the beauty, tactility and durability of natural yarns.
Every piece is knitted and hand-finished at Wrapt’s premises at Victoria Yards, part of Johannesburg’s Makers Valley, making it the perfect warm and thoughtful fathers day gift!
Knitting is done to order. Orders can be placed in person at Vic Yards (where there are also samples to try on) or online at www.wrapt.co.za. The usual timeline for production is 5-8 working days, but Wrapt’s personalised service makes it possible to accommodate requests for quicker turnaround. Orders over R1,000 are delivered free of charge anywhere in SA.
