Yorkshire Button Kit GBSBK1801

£ 14.99 each
  • Description

Yorkshire buttons are very similar in technique to the traditional Dorset buttons. However, they are made on a little loom, and then stuffed to create a ball or flat shape. They can be made using leftover wool and thread from projects – in fact they often work best with thicker thread. The resulting buttons are very tactile, and lots of fun!

Despite the name, there is no evidence or tradition of an historic industry or tradition in Yorkshire regarding this button making technique. Someone, somewhere, coined the name, and it stuck!

6 reusable template tools – make as many buttons as you need

Full instructions, as well as instructions for 6 variations
