This colourful modern tea cosy has six sides — each carefully sewn with thread to match the panel — and is made with thick, European, all-wool felt in alternating panels of Burnt Orange, Grey Flannel, Midnight Black and Pimento red. It is topped off by a simple hang-tab for easy doffing and donning of the cosy on your teapot. This beautiful thick felt has a wonderful hand-feel – so important in a tea cosy don’t you think?
The “Ribbed” design’s inwardly curved bottom cups and holds the pot in a most satisfying way, and I love the way it sits small and then, like a puffer fish, expands to encompass the teapot.
If your teapot is a bit larger — or you just like the look — you can also tug gently on opposite sides and the stiff felt will pop out and further expand like a turban-shaped tent to enclose the teapot. Check this post for more details.
Size: SMALL 20″ circumference x 7.5″ interior height fits most small, 2-cup teapots (18 to 24 oz)., and because of its expandable shape can accomodate some larger teapots as well.
Did you know that wool felt is a completely eco-friendly product? Wool is a renewable resource (every spring) and this European wool felt is manufactured to Oeko-Tek 100 standards which means it is certified free of toxic materials in its making. Sleep well!
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: a recent buyer reminded me that wool is the traditional gift theme for the 7th wedding anniversary. Nudge nudge.
