This five-coloured modern multi panel tea cosy has six sides — each carefully sewn with thread to match the panel. It is made with thick, European, all-wool felt in alternating panels of Royal Purple, Magenta, Moss Green, Chartreuse and Midnight Black. Topping it off is a simple hang-tab in Fuchia pink for easy doffing and donning of the cosy on your teapot. The beautiful felt has a wonderful hand-feel – so important in a tea cosy don’t you think?
The “Ribbed” cosies are made from smaller pieces of felt in the workshop so the colourways are not regularly duplicated and mostly one-of-a-kind. The ribs of an umbrella inspired their name.
This multi panel tea cosy design’s inwardly curved bottom cups and holds the pot in a most satisfying way, and I love the way it gently 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.
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!
