Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is the tale of a little washer-woman hedgehog, who busies herself delivering freshly laundered clothes to the other creatures of the hillside. Her character was inspired by Beatrix Potter’s own pet hedgehog of the same name, and Kitty Macdonald - a washerwoman employed by her parents throughout her childhood.
We certainly have a soft spot for this character, and we like to think Mrs Tiggy-Winkle would approve greatly as we all set to work loving and laundering our newly landed wraps...
Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is a beautifully soft buttercup yellow against a light, cool grey. Like our other Beatrix Potter Collection wraps she is comprised of 46% luxury combed cotton and 21% linen on a Egyptian cotton warp (33%), and despite her name this little hedgehog is not prickly at all. The combed cotton/ linen Geos break in very quickly and soon become amazingly soft and smushy!
Mrs Tiggy-Winkle weighs in at approximately 277 g/m².
