    Give your wellington boots the festival make-over with these smart welly toppers from designer Erika Knight. We have one kit to give away worth £19.99, it includes two skeins of yarn from Erika Knight’s Yarn Collection; fur wool and maxi wool in the sophisticated colourway flax. A postcard pattern is also included with full instructions on how to make your Furry Welly Toppers. They are a quick easy knit, so you’ll be flying the flag for British sheep in no time. All Erika’s yarns are part of the British Countryside & HRH Prince Charles’ Campaign for Wool, they also carry the prestigious British Woolmark.

    So whether you’re heading out to one of many festivals that are coming up over the next few months or just walking the dog, there is no better way to turn your wellies into festival chic!
