WILL THIS TEA COSY FIT YOUR TEAPOT?

Ideally, if you pinch the cosy at the teapot’s spout and handle there should be at least 1/2″ (1.5cm) of wiggle room.  If the spout sits tight against the fabric it will wick up any liquid and stain the cosy.

The “Ribbed” design fits large teacosies

The standard size, six-paneled Ribbed style was designed to fit the average 4-cup teapot but its puffer-fish nature means it can accommodate a quite large teapot — like a 6-cup.  When expanded its circumference is about 37″ around.  Allowing an inch of pinch this would accommodate a teapot (including spout and handle) up to about 35″ around.  Check the blog entry.
