Thistle Tea Cosy, Tunisian Crochet Tea Cozy with Scottish Thistle

Thistle Tea Cosy, Tunisian Crochet Tea Cozy with Scottish Thistle
£22.50 1 Available
Love this


I have designed a new style of tea cosy using Tunisian crochet for the grey base which makes a lovely thick fabric to keep your tea warm. There is a crocheted dark green thistle flower and leaf attached to the top.

The teacosy is made with a grey wool blend yarn, 63% wool, 37% acrylic yarn. The crochet thistle and leaf are made with a mixture of acrylic and merino wool yarns in shades of dark green and purple. The grey of the tea cosy is quite a warm grey. (The photo is showing it to be a lot cooler than it really is).

It will fit a 4 cup teapot and there is a roll brim at the bottom to allow for different heights of teapot. When laid flat the tea cosy measures approx 7.5 inches across the middle of one side. The height when laid flat is approx 6.5 inches.

I would recommend hand washing this item in cool water. Do not tumble dry.

Tunisian crochet is a new to me craft which I have delved into recently. It is similar to crochet in that you use a hook but you need a long hook and end up with lots of stitches on your hook, similar to knitting. Each row has a return pass where you end up with one stitch on the hook again before you start the next row. It is quite time consuming but I have really enjoyed dipping my toe into this new craft.
