    • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints


    I was commissioned to design the Friesian Cow tea cosy. I was asked to include a cowbell and to have her chewing grass, and to have an udder.

    Friesian cow's are dairy cow's so I gave her a large udder. In her mouthful of grass I thought it would be lovely to include a daisy. After reticently visiting a cow milking facility, what I noticed was that they have very bony bottoms, and I have tried to include this.

    I think this tea cosy is charming and has a morning and breakfast tea time feel.

    This Tea Cosy: is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
