This gift set is the perfect present for any penguin lover! The gift set includes a pair of adorable bamboo socks with penguins on and one my cute little craft kits, which includes everything you need to make your own penguin ornament. The socks come in four sizes; UK 9-12 (kids), UK 12-3 (kids), UK4-7 and UK 7-11 (see photos for size/age indication).
🧵 About the socks
The socks are from Bare Kind, which is an independent and responsible business. The company was started in 2018 by Lucy, who works with conservation charities and donates 10% of the profits to the animals on your socks, so in this case the penguins! The socks themselves are made in a factory in Istanbul. It is a third generation family-run factory, fully BSCI and SEDEX audited with all workers over the age of 18 and receiving fair wages.
On a personal note, I absolutely LOVE these socks and bought some for myself and as gifts before the opportunity to work this incredible company came up, so I can vouch for the socks!
🧵 About the craft kit
This craft kit is a lovely little activity to do for adults and kids. The kits include everything you need to make your very own little ornament, you just need scissors. The kits consist of colour written instructions, ornament templates, acrylic felt, embroidery floss, mini pompoms, buttons and sequins (depending on the ornament), toy stuffing and a needle.
The kits are designed for hand sewing, so are easy to make and are suitable for beginners. You really only need a straight stitch, but if you're more experienced than you can include a blanket stitch and there are links to clips in the instructions.
Your penguin will look great hanging from your houseplants, your door handles, your keys or use it to add a splash of colour to your house!
The finished ornament is approximately 9cm (3 4/8 inches) at the widest point and 11cm (3 4/8inches) at the tallest point
