Available now in my Etsy shop – the complete kit for my popular duckling crochet pattern!
Read on for all the details on this eco-friendly duckling crochet kit.
Ever since I published my duckling crochet pattern I have been looking for suitable, eco-friendly materials to create a kit. I have been asked about it many times too, so I’m so pleased to now be able to offer one!
I finally sourced a 100% merino wool, that is soft and delicious and a dream to crochet. The sheep are organically farmed in the Falklands, and their wool is spun into yarn at a mill in the British Isles. The yarn also fluffs up beautifully to create the most adorable fluffy ducklings. Wool is an annually-renewable resource and completely biodegradable.
The kit also contains smooth bamboo-cotton blend yarn to complete the eyes, beak and feet, and as always, lovely, squishy, natural carded wool for stuffing.
The kit includes a secret weapon for the fluffing of your duckling, a blunt-tipped yarn needle, a recycled card gift tag and, optionally, a bamboo crochet hook in the size required to complete the pattern.
The 20-page pattern is printed on 100% recycled paper, and the tissue paper inside the box is also 100% recycled. The box itself and the label on the front are recycled and recyclable and – now that I have replaced the self-adhesive labels I previously used – entirely plastic free.
There are still a few aspects of this kit I’m working on, to see if I can remove all plastic and cotton, to make it even more eco-friendly.
