This mug cosy has been made using a 100% polyamide (aka Nylon) yarn I found on my recent trip to Germany.
It's made by Schachenmayr (the German arm of Coats) and makes a very intriguing mug cosy because it's very hard to tell that it's been made from what is essentially, plastic!
The cosy is washable at 30 degrees, which is handy, but being made from a plastic yarn, is therefore not suitable for ironing...
Both beautiful and practical - keep your bevvy warm...and save burning your hands!
The mug cosy has a lovely feel and beautiful finish. It will fit a large mug, and features a crocheted button closure, plus a fabulous (also in crochet) flower on the front.
