WHAT IS IT?
Macramé is on the up…and so are your plants! No longer seen as a 1970’s has-been or just for hippies and spider plants, macramé is cool again. More modern and stronger cords than once were available mean that macramé can be much more colourful than in the past, or choose a neutral or natural shade for a rustic effect.
My illustration shows the bleached optic white cord with the cream being a more neutral undyed ecru shade. Both of these colours can be dyed either before or after knotting – dip the base tassel into dye and let it bleed upwards for a contemporary look.
*Plastic Free Packaging* An order for one single kit will now be presented in plastic free packaging. This is a sturdy cardboard box that will fit through your letterbox and is sealed with paper tape, so no polythene or plastic. Unfortunately multiple kits for the moment will need to include some plastic to not only keep kits separate, but to also send them securely, though we will keep plastic to a minimum and are currently trialling paper options. The gift bag does include some plastic in the window and lining, but is undyed and unbleached natural jute, so as eco as we can get for this type of bag.
Please note that in order to provide you with an eco product at a great price this is not an all-singing, all-dancing kit where there's fancy photos and unnecessary packaging. You get a ring, some cord and some instructions - and that's all you need! The labelled gift bag makes a nicer presentation for a gift, but please just bear in mind that you might want to 'tart up' the basic kit if it is being bought as a gift :)
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Whether you hang plants, a terrarium or just a bowl of treats it’s time to get knotting and this kit will get you started really quickly. It includes a metal ring (colour may vary from image), an illustrated pattern and enough cotton cord to create one good size hanger.
WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?
Don’t worry about scouring the internet for the right instructions and the right yarn – you get it all here for a great price, and once you’ve started you’ll be hooked,,,or should that be knotted?
