Kotare Scarves

Our neighbours, the Australians might not be putting on a decent show at cricket for some weaver's liking but they beat the All Blacks at Rugby last weekend!!  But we won the netball so all's fair in TransTasman rivalry.

Sorry to be repeating information here but Kotare is one of my favourite colour way resources.

New Zealand's sacred kingfisher or kĊtare is a cousin of the kookaburra in Australia. It’s ancestors flew here from Australia around 10,000 years ago.  Kingfishers are found widely in New Zealand in a wide range of habitats, the key ingredient being an elevated position for observation.   The Kotare is a distinctive bird with a green-blue back, buff to yellow undersides and a large black bill.
