Inspired by the Romney flock at a local Rhode Island farm, these sheep buttons look great on hand knit wool sweaters. 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.
They are available in 5 sizes and your buttons will come carded. The 3/4", 1" and 1.25” come with 4 buttons on a card; 1.5" with 2 buttons on a card; and 2” with 1 button on a card.
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.
Available Sheep Buttons in this listing:
Traditional two hole button with the outline of a sheep and two holes at the center
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
Approximate Size: 1/8” thick, available in 3/4" x 5/8”, 1" x 7/8”, 1.25" x 1”, 1.5" x 1.25”, and 2” x 1.75”
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each ornament may slightly vary.
