Message: Hullo there,
Our son Daniel is about 10 days away from finishing a 4-5 month walk from Cape Reinga to the Bluff!! He is fund raising for our local rescue helicopter here in Hawkes Bay.
You very kindly sent him some of your Wool-it before he started.
My husband, another son and I have just recently joined him for part of his journey in the South Island. I took some of your Wool-it with me and THANK GOODNESS I did!
Day 1 – ok
Day 2 – I needed your woolit and put it in my sox.
Day 3 – Great
Day 4 – Great
Day 5 – Great
It saved my life!!!
So I just wanted to say THANK YOU for sending it to Daniel. It is amazing and such a good idea. Especially when it is so light and doesn’t take up any space in the pack!
All the best and thanks again,
A very grateful Mother!!
