Update 2020: A new version of these acorn ornaments in 100% organic cotton is now available in my shop.
All my items are as sustainable as I can make them. These oak leaves are made in are made in a combination of bamboo and wool yarn. The acorns are made from the small quantities of hand-dyed cotton yarn left over from my crocheted pangolin.
I avoid using non-organic cotton as much as I can because current cotton production methods are not environmentally sustainable: the cotton yarn used in these acorns is hand-dyed and balled by women in an economically deprived region of South Africa, providing much-needed employment and empowerment
The 100% natural British wool stuffing inside the acorns is a sustainable, annually-renewable resource.
Since I am using up the cotton yarn left over from my pangolin project, there will only be a limited number of these available.
