Inspired by the Romney flock at a local Rhode Island farm, these sheep buttons look great on hand knit wool sweaters.
There are two types of Sheep buttons sharing this listing: one is a traditional two hole button with the outline of a sheep and two holes at the center. The other is a stitchable button with eleven holes making up the outline of the sheep. Stitch in all of the holes across her body to fill in her woolly fleece. The holes are left empty so that you can stitch them in with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread. You will be prompted to choose between stitchable buttons and two hole buttons when you add to your shopping cart.
These bamboo buttons are 1/8" thick. The 3/4", 1" and 1.25" buttons come in cards of four and the 1.5" buttons come in cards of two. Please let me know if you would like to order a size or quantity other than what is listed.
These buttons are a great way to personalize garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your accessories with a special touch. Match the wool in your sheep buttons to the sweater you're knitting or use a contrasting color to make the sheep really pop.
It is important to me that each item I make is special and bamboo contributes to this as a unique material. Bamboo plywood is sustainable and is stronger than wood. Bamboo has a rich history of roles and uses in Asian mythology and culture and is even used in Chinese medicine because of its anti-bacterial properties.
Your buttons will arrive carded and will have a care card with them.
These buttons can go in the washer and the dryer, but as with most things made of natural materials, they will probably last longer if they are hand washed or if the item is dried flat.
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may vary slightly.
