Owl Babies

In our post about Woolfest, we talked about how popular our fab Tawny Owl kits were and so here are some more details for those of you who also just have to have one of these adorable little owls.

The Tawny Owl Kit is a collaboration between Ella Austin and Fyberspates yarn and each kit contains the owl pattern by Ella Austin; an instruction booklet with clear directions, charts, photographs and illustrations; Faerywings yarn by Fyberspates hand dyed in a custom colour and Scrumptious 4ply in Oyster and Slate; 100% lambswool stuffing, and two olive wood buttons.

Tawny Owl is a quick and satisfying knit. This enchanting toy will appeal to all ages as a cuddly companion or a delightful ornament. The finished dimensions  of our little friend is 14cm (5.5”) so a cute and huggable critter to keep you company and enjoy knitting up.

To make yourself a knitted lovely, you will need to know how to knit in the round, be able to read charts and use a few simple increases and decreases. There is also some stranded knitting to work the lovely patterned belly and finally some i-cord for the finishing touch.

The three skeins included in the kit are Faerywings (67% silk, 23% mohair, 10% nylon), hand dyed in the custom colour' Owls', as well as  Scrumptious 4ply (45% silk, 55% superwash merino) in Oyster and Slate. All packaging and the printed booklet use 100% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable.

We love this little knitted creature and think it would make a great gift or totally selfish knitting project. Whoever you decide to be the lucky recipient, you can purchase your kit here.
