Dry Oilskin Project Bag - Steel/dark brown

Regular price $185.00

Tax included.

A rather nice knitting bag for your special projects, in an mid-toned clear grey colour. 

Reminiscent of a 1930s boxing bag, this drawstring knitting bag will provide storage for small to large projects. The last photo shows my own oilskin bag after four years of heavy use. This was a lighter colour red oilskin.

The bag is fully lined, with two external and two internal pockets. It's well-batted, so will stand up on its own. There's a blue-grey drawstring, and hand-finished NZ veg tan leather handle in crisp dark brown.

There's lots of top-stitching, and room for a fair bit of yarn. Hardware is solid brass.

Height -  29 cm/11.5 inches
Width - 36 cm / 14 inches
Depth - 15 cm / 6 inches (that's measured along the bottom boxing)
Outer - British dry oilskin.
Inner - Japanese cotton/linen in a light blue, with floral confetti.

Bag outer can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Dry oilskin will get a more crumpled look, and may lighten with age. It is possible to smooth out some (but not all) wrinkle marks, with light use of a hair dryer - front photo shows after warming, back is before. There may be initial rub off of oil, though it settles very quickly! 

Inner can be spot cleaned. 

Bag drawstrings are quite stiff - this softens up with use.
