Farmer Ted

£42.00
Regular price £42.00

Fabulous traditional old bear.  It's Ted.  He is absolutely wonderful.  The perfect gift to keep forever.  

Home Farm Wensleydales produce Wensleydale wool to the highest standard and the ethos of our farm is always animal care, welfare and husbandry first.    

Our luxurious wool is made from our finest fleeces, washed and spun in Yorkshire.  Our wool is soft, smooth and silky, bursting with lustre and worsted spun to ensure great stitch definition. 

Our pure longwool yarns are versatile and can be used for most knitting and crochet patterns as well as the lovely range that we have on offer from Home Farm Wensleydales.


THIS KIT CONTAINS: 

300g (10.58 oz) of Home Farm Wensleydales luxury Big Bulky wool in Amber for Ted and your choice of colour for his jumper. 

Button for the back of Ted's jumper.

Pattern with clear instructions to complete your Ted.

(There is a button on the back of Farmer Teds jumper.  For baby/child gifts  I would suggest the jumper is sewn in place and the button is not used)

Wool for Teds eyes.

Stuffing is not included.  However, if you would like to stuff Ted with NOIL, this will make him a little heavier - I am happy to include enough noil for you at no extra cost.  Please message me with the 'get in touch' button below.

YOU WILL NEED: 5mm (US 8) knitting needles and a tapestry needle.  Stuffing if you require a lighter weight stuffing for Ted.

SKILL LEVEL: Easy to knit but time should be taken over the sewing up and marking out the eyes.

HOW MINE CAME OUT: My Ted measures

COLOUR CHOICES: Ted is knitted in Amber.  Please select your choice of colour for the jumper.

LAUNDRY CARE:  Handwash and dry flat.  Unless you have a new machine with a clever pure wool cycle.  

 With a heavier stuffing, Farmer Ted also makes a beautiful door stopper!

 

 

 

Packaging

Wherever possible we will use paper packaging

However, Europe, US, Canada and Rest of World, it is not always possible to use paper due to the soft contents of the package.  If this is the case, we use 90 micron polythene mailbags.  Recycling guide: LDPE 4 (Low density polyethylene).

Low-density polyethylene, or LDPE, is number 4-coded plastic, commonly used to manufacture shopping bags, dry cleaning bags and flexible bottles and lids.  Although not as commonly recycled as number 1 polyethylene terephthalate or number 2 high-density polyethylene, LDPE recycling is gaining traction as its post-consumer uses increase. One use is combining recycled LDPE with wood to create composite lumber suitable for light applications. All these plastics can be recycled into different products, but of the three, LDPE results in the most greenhouse gas savings when it's recycled.  

But please - do not put number 4 LDPE plastic into a recycling bin unless you are sure it is accepted. Otherwise, you could contaminate an entire batch of recycled plastic.
