Absolutely amazing item: shiny, smooth, and very cute! A perfect Christmas present for my mother, which was shipped first class in order to ensure it would be received on time!

A flurry of foxes are taking over Skate Rumple...


A small family arts and crafts business in Orkney; home to four gorgeous alpacas as well as menagerie of other animals.

Orkney is an incredibly creative place, not to mention inspiring with it's beautiful light, friendly culture and stunning scenery. (We won't mention the extreme weather!) We live in Deerness, which is 'almost an island', joined onto the Mainland by a very narrow road. We are literally surrounded by sea, and Nick never comes back empty handed from a trip to the beach. After collecting artist bears for years, not to mention a love of Paddington, Mandy began making her own. Each one has it's own character, no two ever being alike, and she often names her bears with Norse/Orcadian names, such as Thorfinn, Erlend and Haakon. Orkney is rich in folklore, wildlife and history, and Ellen fills her sketchbooks with 'trows', witches, puffins, seals, Vikings and Neolithic inspired art.
As you've probably spotted, we have four gorgeous alpacas, as well pigs, goats and quite a few feathered friends. You can book to visit the farm, meet our menagerie and eat lots of cake in the Bothy!
Thanks for looking at our Etsy shop,
Mandy, Nick and Ellen x
