Six Large Square or Oblong Buttons - Mixed Wood
Made in New England! Favour Valley Woodworking has resurrected the traditional art of making buttons from locally available materials. Buttons are made from local wood and antler, much of it found in or near Favour Valley NH. They are shaped and smoothed to slide easily through a button hole and are treated with natural tung oil to stand up to modern washing machines and dry cleaning processes.
Wood buttons are round or rectangular, oblong or "teapot" shaped and come in small, medium, large sizes as well as extra large decorative styles. Antlers are made into sliced buttons or antler tip toggles. Woods and sizes vary, not precise, not always like pictured.
*Button Care: Wood buttons can be hand washed and air dried! If the surface loses it's sheen over time a little furniture polish or bees wax and oil mixture will refresh the bright colors.
*Holes: In medium and large buttons holes are sized to accommodate thicker yarns up to a heavy worsted weight but a heavy button hole, hand quilting or crochet thread also works well. Smaller buttons have holes large enough for fingering yarn or thread.
