Heirloom Wool Easter Eggs
Close to my house growing up there was a small, abandoned jewel-box of a train depot that my sister and I called the “Bunny House.” We imagined that it was the Easter Bunny’s off-season home, and even now that I’m the one filling baskets and hiding eggs, I still conjure those childhood daydreams of an enchanted white bunny gathering her Easter supplies from the train depot. And in these fantasies she is almost definitely carrying a basket full of these Heirloom Wool Easter Eggs!
Our Easter Eggs celebrate the season with embroidered wool felt flowers and beautiful details, and you can make your very own with Purl Soho’s Heirloom Wool Easter Eggs Kit, no magical bunnies required! It is available in two pretty palettes: Magnolia, a collection of soft pastels, and Zinnia, a bouquet of happy brights.
Whether your Heirloom Wool Easter Eggs hang from a spring branch or nestle inside a basket or are in the tiny paws of the Easter Bunny herself, they are sure to harbinger a very happy spring! -Corinne
