The Kitchen Store
With its wonderful insulating properties, felt is perfect for use in the kitchen. Felt tea cosies keep the tea piping hot and the hot-pot stands work well as place mats avoiding scratching delicate surfaces and looking good into the bargain. All my kitchen ware is finished off in the washing machine, this makes it very hard wearing and resistant to moisture. The felt shrinks down masses in the machine and becomes almost cardboardy! The kitchen pieces are the only ones that can be washed in the machine (at 30 degrees) as after a while the felt no longer reduces in size. Although fairly quick to make compared to my other products, the kitchen ware uses a great quantity of wool and is consequently costly to produce. Tea cosies start at £30, hot pot stands £15 and egg cosies £5.
