Looking for a gift for a modern tea drinker?
This modern tea cosy has six sides and is made with thick, industrial-grade 85% wool felt. Its lovely blue-grey tone results from the blending of natural baa-baa wool colours. Topping off the cosy is a simple hang-tab in Burnt Orange for easy doffing and donning of the cosy on your teapot. The industrial felt is a shade thicker than the European felt, lending the cosy a firmer, more architectural character.
Dubbed “Ribbed” because it called to mind an umbrella shape. Its 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 little 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.
SIZE: STANDARD 25″ circumference and 9″ height fits most average-size (32oz or 4 cup) tea pots. Puzzled? Have a look at the flock’s sizing diagram. Note: because of its expandable shape this tea cosy can accomodate some larger teapots as well — up to 35″ in diameter when expanded. Have a look at this blog post.
