In celebration of Madiba’s centenary birthday, a team effort broke the Guinness World Record for the longest crocheted scarf. It reached 29.17km and was laid out at the historic Nelson Mandela capture site in Howick‚ in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands (South Africa). The scarves will be returned to their provinces of origin and distributed to the poor.
