The Beltie Tea Cosy is a fluffy tea cosy that looks like a belted Galloway cow, and with her fluffy coat she’s perfect for keeping the teapot hot. Belted Galloway cattle are a traditional breed of the west of Scotland in the Galloway region.

To give the Belted Galloway tea cosy that woolly look, I used King Cole Cuddles Chunky, which is very insulating with its texture which knits up to give a nice nap to the finished cosy.

The Beltie tea cosy is a lovely cosy and I can see people who love farm animals and the countryside as well and people who love Scotland enjoying this cosy.

About her feet in the thick lush grass are thistles. I thought they would add a nice touch of colour to the cosy and again it harks back to the breeds heritage.
