Featured is the Mrs Cat Loves Knitting felt craft kit − everything you need to complete the kit is in the box. She never goes anywhere without her bag of yarn and needles so she can add a row or two while she’s out and about. +44 (0)1132 460 403 TOPDOG CANDLES TopDog Candles started in 2018, when the company realised that a lot of the big brands on the market were selling plastic- based wax products that gave off a black spoke and were unhealthy to breathe in. All of TopDog Candles’ products are made from naturally-sourced, eco-friendly and vegan soy wax. Being eco-friendly is at the heart of the company’s ethos. Even its packaging is 90 per cent environmentally friendly and will be 100 per cent by mid-2021. All products are seasonally scented (changing every six months to keep products fresh) and use bio-degradable mica for a glitter effect. LAVINIA STAMPS Lavinia Stamps is a homegrown craft company with humble beginnings starting at the kitchen table evolving into a successful British business.
