The Village Haberdashery Christmas Gift Guide

Anyone who works with yarn or fabrics will love to receive some Soak modern laundry care products this Christmas! Soak Flatter is a starch-free smoothing spray that relaxes wrinkles and freshens fabrics, leaving it sleek, soft and static-free. Soak Wash is the no-rinse cleanser you can trust for garments and blankets you’ve handmade with love. Both come in a selection of lush flavours like yuzu and pineapple! Find them in the shop here.

Who wouldn’t want to open up a cute Toft Animal kit on Christmas morning?! We have a great selection of their amigurumi crochet toys designed by Kerry Lord. These animal designs are crocheted in luxury super soft DK weight 100% British wool yarn. This kit attracts all ages and makes a perfect gift for children and adults alike. The animals and creatures are addictive and people are easily ‘hooked’!

For more crochet fun we also have these Hipster Tie Kits. They come in a selection of great colours and are suitable for all levels.
