The Country Chickens tea cosy is a charming little tea cosy with three hens sitting on nests at the top. The hens are different colours, and all have red combs and wattles. The Country Chickens tea cosy brings that country cottage feeling to your teapot and being hand-crafted from double thickness yarn it keeps the tea piping hot.

I design and knit unique tea cosies. I really love designing exciting and unusual tea cosies, its great fun and people don’t mind having an over the top tea cosy. Plus they are a great talking point at tea time and make for brilliant knitting projects.
I have quite a following with regular customers who regularly buy my latest designs from my website TeaCosyFolk.co.uk
I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
