Three Facts: Our Knitted Terrier Cushion

Our hand-knitted fox terrier cushions have become a real Plum & Ashby statement piece. Knitted now in three colour ways; navy, red and grey, we thought we'd share the facts that make these cushions special and different from the rest!
.
Our knitters need the essentials before they start - knitting needles, merino wool and a cuppa!
.
FACT 1:
.
It takes our knitters on average 10 hours to create one 45x45cm cushion, with tea breaks in-between! Normally knitted over a couple of days and whenever they fancy, each cushion really is created with love from start to finish.

FACT 2:
.
The average age of our knitters is 65, with the oldest being 84! We think the older, the better the knit, it's all down to experience behind those needles!  
/
FACT 3:
.
All of the wool that we use comes from Merino sheep - the finest quality wool we can get our hands on. To make one cushion, the knitters can use anything up to 16 balls, depending on the size and colours they are using.
