Our popular Eden bag kit is reintroduced with a stunning red Wensleydale marl wool. There is a couple of buttoned pockets underneath the flap for little bits and pieces such as keys and more, carefully hidden away under the buttoned flap. The kit contains 300 g of this lustrous Wensleydale wool.
These kits come with a natural Kraft brown carrier illustrated by a large decorative Sheepfold label on the front; ideal as a gift either as a kit or as a completed item.
To knit this wonderful bag you will need a pair of 5.5 mm knitting needles and a 5.5 mm circular needle, not to mention an enthusiasm for British wool! The I-cord handles are knitted with 4.5 mm double pointed needles then plaited. Stitch markers and stitch holders are useful too. The ‘hard work’ of felting is easily done in your washing machine; such is the simplicity of knit-and-felt.
The finished size of the example containing hand-dyed wool is approximately 25 cm x 22 cm x 9 cm (width x height x depth) depending on how far you take the felting process.
