Product Description

Chia

Chia seeds, spirulina, cacao nibs, goji berries – ‘super foods’.  Have we completely forgotten how to eat?  These supposed ‘super foods’ have been around since the beloved caveman.  Why is it, that we are now being reminded by enterprising food companies to eat these nutrition dense foods?  Wasn’t it these same companies that sold us highly processed nutritionally void convenience foods?  Who’s our enemy now?  Sugar? Fat? Carbohydrates?  It’s the Stephanie Alexanders of this world that have taken the war into their own hands.  Arming our children with knowledge of nutrition and the skills of growing and preparing their own food. With this learned knowledge, our children are certain to get it right..aren’t they?
Salvia Hispanica (chia) – a member of the mint family originating from Mexico and Guatemala.  The texture of this scarf represents the knobbly seeds clambering together to form a majestic towering flower.

~ Made from premium Australian Lambswool.

~ Scarf dimensions are 200cm Loop x 16cm wide.
