Spotted Pig Tea cosy with the lining brought up to create a co-ordinating trim. Trimmed around the pigs with lace and ribbon. Ideal for 1 pint / 500-600 ml 2-3 cup teapots. This tea cozy is double insulated . First a layer of combination Mylar heat-resistant film and hollow polyester fibers. Second a layer of thick 211 gsm thermal wadding.
Perfect for keeping your tea hot or your iced tea cold. See final photo for an experiment I did to see how long it would stay hot using a litre sized pot and cosy
The main pale green is a vintage upholstery cotton fabric and the pigs are cotton. The lining a thick warm looking linen cotton mix.
For those who are interested I believe the snub nosed pig is a Oxford Sandy and Black and the longer nose is a Gloucester Old Spot – the most famous of the spotted pigs.
