Description

By popular demand. The Dorset buttons mixed pack in colour packs. Each pack contains instructions for 5 different button styles including crosswheel, ammonite, yarrell, daisy chain and flower. There are 10 rings (2.6cm across), enough Beaker Button hand dyed thread to make 10 buttons and a needle.

Examples of the button styles are shown above. Please be aware that the colours may vary a little from the photos shown. The 4ply wool thread is hand dyed by us in our studio in Hampshire and will have some variations. Each button will be unique depending on how you stitch it with as well. That is what is so wonderful about Dorset buttons, that they are unique to the button maker!

Dorset buttons were made by hand in Dorset from the early 1600’s to 1851. They were shipped all over the world and were even worn by royalty. This cottage industry employed over 4000 people at its height, making over 100 different button types. Their popularity died overnight after the Great Exhibition of 1851, when a new button machine was showcased. Many families were left destitute and emigrated to escape starvation, and the art was more or less lost. The W.I. and others have kept this fabulous craft alive and now you can learn how to make them too.
