KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT
Lavender sachets - made from Harris Tweed
The idea of finding moth larvae eating through the precious stash fills crafters with dread. Lavender bags are a great way of naturally repelling moths and keeping your stash better protected.
The lavender in these bags is grown in Yorkshire and France and smells divine. The sachets have a linen loop so you can hang them up around your stash, place them in boxes or even add them to your stash of already knitted and crocheted items. The sachets are sewn and filled by me in Cheshire, using Harris Tweed that I personally chose and bought on Harris.
Using the Lavender Sachets
Lavender is a repellent to moths but doesn't kill them or their larvae. If you suspect that you have moths in your stash then I suggest looking at the following website as it is very informative on eradication and prevention: www.watoxics.org/healthy-living/healthy-homes-gardens-1/factsheets/clothingmoths
I have deliberately not overfilled the lavender sachets. This allows you to rub the bags every now and then to release the fresh scent into your stash or wardrobe. Moths are very scent sensitive, so by handling the bags regularly, it will continue to help repel the wee beasties.
Lavender Sachet Dimensions
Approximately 6cm by 16.5cm.
Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
I source the lavender from Yorkshire (it is a mix of Yorkshire grown ( PoM rated) and French grown lavender ( PoM rated). The Fabric comes from Harris on the Outer Hebrides in Scotland ( PoM rated).
Postage and Packaging
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
