Animated Tea Cosy


If you observed World Naked Gardening Day in May, then the naked gardener tea cosy is especially for you.

The naked gardener tea cosy is a playful tea cosy with a naked lady gardening. She's reaching over a little bush, a hebe perhaps and she chopping off some unruly leaves with her shears.

The composition is a 'calendar girls' style, where the nakedness is discrete and not in your face. Because she's leaning over the bush, half of her body is hidden.

The bush is knitted in a lovely lace pattern so that you can see the teapot beneath. It gives the bush a lovely texture.

In front of the bush is a watering can. It's one of those vintage style watering cans made from a silver coloured metal.

For most people I guess naked gardening isn't their thing, but if outrageous tea cosies that amuse and get people talking are your thing, you'll love the naked gardener tea cosy.

Just trimming the topiary ball and then she'll have a nice neat bush.

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
  • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints
