Description

This kit contains everything you need to make the necklace in the photo, including needle, rings, yarn and full written instructions with clear photos. It is an original design (mine, it's so exciting!).

The yarn used in the kit is a Beaker Button hand dyed baby skein (75%merino/25%nylon and very soft). Once made the necklace has an approximate drop of 28cm, although this can be altered by adding changing the length of the fastening loop changing the number of buttons used. The necklace is 3.5cm across at it's widest point.

If you like the pattern but want a different colour or fibre please convo us. We custom make kits to order.

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.
