Country Cousin is the corner where you can find my not-so-traditional sock dolls - happy pocket companions for little people- washable and dryable; the increasingly popular weaving kits - enough to make two small mats or wall hangings, the weaving kit offers a dozen "eggs" of specialty yarn, a set of easy instructions, a weaving needle, and a weaving board already warped with yarn to get you started.
Also you'll find hand spun wool yarn - great colors and naturals - every inch made by me during the evenings at home. Wool from different varieties of sheep, some natural colors, some dyed marvelous combinations of colors...it's all part of the ongoing exploration.
Please note: shipping costs are based on rates to continental US only...thank you!
Introducing the newest batch! Happy Sock Dolls are created to be little companions for little people. They are machine washable and dryable and hold up to normal wear and tear of being stuffed in pockets by sticky fingers. Cotton or cotton blend socks, new ribbon, polyfill stuffing - all handsewn, faces painted for smiles.
Generally six to nine inches tall. No two alike - please let me choose one for you.
An ever changing inventory of yarns spun from so many breeds of sheep - I keep trying new things. You can choose a skein as an accent or enough for a creative project of your own. Email me to inquire - I can send you photos. Priced by the ounce $3.00 - $5.50 depending on fiber.
Designed to be a creative tool for exploration for new weavers or a plaything for the more experienced. Enjoyed by folks from 6 to 90 and often just the thing for the person who "has everything"
My weaving kits include complete instructions, a weaving needle, and a dozen "eggs" of assorted yarns including handspun. The package is backed by a reusable weaving board, already warped so you can start at once.
Feel free to suggest your color preferences and I'll try to satisfy your wishes...If you order multiples, I'll combine shipping to save you money. I'll ship promptly after PayPal is credited - and generally use priority mail through USPO. I want my customers to be happy.
