Indulge yourself or a loved one with this limited edition, unique, festive gift box full of hand made, exclusive treats for some well deserved down time during the busiest part of year. Last year, our Gingerbread festive boxes were a sell out - we were thrilled you enjoyed them so much and we've been busy planning our Pine & Snow box all year!
With this box, we want to take you wandering through a wintry forest (with your project to hand of course, just in case!) You have local yarn to cast on with, an exclusive knitting pattern (with matching markers and washi tape, naturally), award winning chocolate and tea - mood lighting and a music playlist you can download! The tea makes the whole box smell like Fezziwig's parlour - it's a delight for all your senses!! We have spent time finding quality, handmade products from British producers; tried, tested and loved, we hope you'll enjoy our Pine & Snow Box! Presented in a magnetic close gift box that you'll be able to keep and store your treasure in for years to come!
Northern Yarn - Mamó
Mamó is a worsted spun DK yarn, made from fleeces of Poll Dorset and Bluefaced Leicester sheep that graze on farms around Lancashire and Cumbria. Named for my Irish grandma (or Mamó) who patiently showed me the repeated stitches and loops that would start me on my knitting journey! In your box you'll have a 50g ball of the natural (Maggie) and green (Glanduff) which is enough to make the Pine & Snow beanie (pattern included) or another quick project. (If you would prefer different colours just let us know in the notes of your order.) You can read more about Mamó in our blog.
Fripperies & Bibelots Stitch Markers
We LOVE RingOs! Sarah has custom made these 5 gorgeous RingOs especially to match our Mamó! These are large markers and will fit up to 8mm needles and come in their own little aluminium screw top tin.
We discovered Choc Amor on a family day out to Cedar Farm in Mawdesley, where Paul & Jacqui have their very own chocolate studio! A multi-award winning
manufacturer of “fiendishly good chocolate” which is ethically sourced; single origin, and very delicious!! We chose Christmas Pudding flavour for our festive box (house milk chocolate, plump juicy fruit with notes of brandy, port and delicious warming spices), with a vegan alternative of Merry Cherry (dark chocolate with black cherries, a hint of kirsch and warming festive spices!) Some of you may remember me stocking these chocolates with the release of our pure Zwartbles yarn many moons ago!
*see bottom of page for allergen info*
A gorgeous, handmade soy candle (100g) with a cotton wick, with extracts of essential oils, paragon and phthalate free - presented in a cute little tin! We chose Forest scent; think fresh fir needles with white cedar and musk, top notes of bergamot, blackcurrant and lemon rind with mid notes of balsam and tonka bean! Oh yes, take me there! (Vegan)
The Soap Dairy - Fig Bath Bonbon
Maria makes these beautiful bath bonbons with Jersey milk from their 'house cow' Buttercup, on a farm in Nibthwaite, Cumbria. Not just fizzy and fragrant, they contain nourishing ingredients to make your skin feel silky and soft. No palm oil - tested on farmers! 100g. Please click through to see full ingredient list.
Established in 1837, Atkinsons is the most beautiful tea and coffee shop, roasting their own coffee and making blends to die for. We've filled a tea bag (unbleached and biodegradable of course) with the prettiest leaves; Black Chai (aniseed, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper & black tea) Prepare for your box to smell like Fezziwig's parlour on Christmas Eve! ***may contain traces of nuts****
Pine & Snow Beanie pattern
This simple pattern came about because I wanted to design something as a little dedication to my Mamó - it's my first toe dip into creating a design, I hope you enjoy it! The beanie is knitted in the round, with a twisted rib then a simple colour work pine tree design. There are some textured snowflakes before decreasing for the crown. A quick knit, you'll have it finished for your wintery walks in no time!
Under the Rowan Trees Washi Tape
Never lose your place in a pattern again with washi tape! Place under the row you're working on to block out some of the noise! Great for charts too and will easily peel off and stick down again. Washi tape is made from rice paper so environmentally friendly too! From purveyors of beautiful stationary - Under The Rowan Trees.
Sheep Postcard with contents & playlist
Being a shepherd herself with a flock of Zwartbles, Lucy Lowcock feels right at home with sheep and her photographer's eye knows how to find the ones who know how to strike a pose! On your postcard this year is a Bluefaced Leicester, who lives with her flock in Ravenstonedale. We use BFL in both Mamó and Methera - it's fleece is one of the softest and finest of the British breeds.
And finally, we also included a QR code playlist of our favourite tunes that evoke the forest and wintery walks - you can find and listen on Spotify!
With big thanks to David at Revo Creative who helped with all the beautiful Pine & Snow imagery and design and to Andy Makin for the photography.
