Many years ago, when I was young and foolhardy, I used to do a lot of diving around the UK's coasts especially around the Farne Islands and Anglesey. Puffins were a constant companion of these diving expeditions. Seeing their distinctive beaks and hearing their noisy cries will always bring back happy memories of summers spent camping around the UK and the distinctive feel of ice cold water rushing through your wetsuit seals as you fell backwards off the boat.
Move forward a couple of years and its another seabird which brings back happy memories. Seagulls may not be as colourful (or popular!) as Puffins but they are definitely an integral part of British summer holidays. Who hasn't had their ice cream stolen by a particularly bold seagull or entertained small children by feeding them chips of a seaside pier?
So you won't be surprised to hear that when looking to expand our Iconic British range we focused first on UK seabirds. The chunky hand made nature of crochet suits these birds and we think that it captures their spirit and charm.
We will be continuing the range with a Peacock - we know that its not the most British of birds but its most distinctive of calls is definitely routed in to memories of trips to stately homes and the thrill of finding a long, gloriously coloured tail feather to take home. We are also working on a range of butterflies to complete the range. These images are of first samples, and there is a lot of work still to be done, so we will update as and when we have completed more work on the toys.
