A better-late-than-never introduction to Tawny Owl!
Here is Tawny Owl, a new buddy for Intrepid Fox, a new knitting pattern design and also available as a lovely knitting kit.
It feels great to have another kit in the BomBella Knit Kit range! I have so many ideas but perfecting the details takes time. And I think the details to Tawny Owl are perfect!
He (or she) is knit using Fyberspates Faery Wings, 67% Silk, 23% Kid Mohair, 10% Nylon, in the custom colour Owls and Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply, 45% Silk and 55% Superwash Merino, in Oyster and Slate. I can see why the Scrumptious range is so popular; it really is stunning.
Again, I’ve used 100% lambswool for the stuffing. I really love the sheepy soft stuffing. It’s heavier than polyester and can be a little lumpy but gently pulling at and manipulating the stuffing fixes that. For Tawny Owl’s eyes I’ve opted for small olive wood buttons.The kits come with a pattern booklet containing clear instructions, charts, photographs and illustrations.
