Calling all crafters!

If you love to get creative with beautiful fabrics we may have just the thing for you! Over the years we have spent lots of our spare time enjoying making things from odd bits and pieces and it struck us that you might be keen to have a go too. So, we've put together some boxes of cashmere, velvet and buttons...

I'm about to share a few fairly old pictures with you to show you some of the things we've made through the years. Please excuse the photography. I'm sincerely hoping that, if you enjoy the contents of these boxes, some of you might be inspired to share your creations so that I can showcase them here.


Each box will contain lots of cashmere pieces in a varied array of colours, some buttons from cardigans we've recycled and a piece of velvet too.

The crafter's boxes start at £15.00 plus £3 postage; click here to order and get crafting as soon as possible.

If you've items that you would like to share with us please email them to and we'll be delighted to add them to this gallery.

Thanks for reading, Kate and the Team xx



Hi Pauline, Yes we do Gents fingerless gloves. Please find them in our navigation bar, or follow the link below :)

Warm wishes, TD Team

My Husband keeps asking if he can have a pair of your fingerless gloves!
Do you make ‘man size’ fingerless gloves?

Hi all, If you are looking into mending your gloves using our customisation packs (or simply with thread) then the best stitches to use are a running stitch, looped, and cross-stitch.

Warm wishes, TD Team

Hi, I’ve read the questions above about cashmere running and which stitch to use when sewing but can’t see the answers! I have a couple of pairs if the fingerless gloves that have now developed small holes and would love to use the customising / crafting packs to make repairs and decorations, but am worried about how to stop the edges from fraying, advice please?

I would be interested in a craft box, but how do you stop the casmere items from running when you cut them?

Dear Turtle Doves
I have bought many of your lovely products over the past few years & have been really satisfied with all of them except the bed socks.
I have 2 pairs but both pairs have got big holes in them really quickly even after your improved design. Is it possible to make the soles thicker?
They are a wonderful product & keep my feet really warm at night. Many thanks.

I brought the hand warmers with some pieces of cashmere to decorate them. When I’ve cut the shapes what stitch is best to use. Do I need to treat it. Thank you

My nieces bought me this to help me ride out the Corona virus – so touched and researching ideas!!
