Note on materials:
1. If Appletons Old English Crewel wool is not available then another 1-ply pure wool yarn may be substituted. If these items are to be displayed in a dolls house and you don’t use Appletons Old English Crewel wool, then make sure the 1-ply wool you substitute has been mothproofed by the manufacturer.
2. The wool and cotton yarn are used together, as one yarn, to give the required thickness, stiffness and texture
