Herdwick Potholder Kit

  • Herdwick Potholder Kit

This double-layered potholder is knitted in pure Herdwick and Swaledale rug wools. The green background is Herdwick, which has been hand dyed by fellow Wool Clip member, Chris Crofts and there is a range of greens in the kits. The body of the Herdwick ewe is undyed Herdwick and the face and legs are undyed Swaledale. The pattern includes a chart for the Herdwick ewe design. This is taken from my
Sheep of Many Colours book. The reverse is plain and the two knitted layers are crocheted together, with a hanging loop added if you wish.

The exact shade of green and undyed Herdwick may vary from that shown. For example, some kits contain a darker green wool with a paler undyed herdwick fo the body. The variation in natural shades reflects the age of the sheep — so both pale and dark Herdwick sheep are what we can see in the Cumbrian fells. If you have a specific preference of dark or mid green for the main colour, just
drop me a note with your order and I will do my best to accommodate your preference.

To complete the project you will require one pair of 4 mm straight needles and a 4.5 mm crochet hook.
