Favour Valley Woodworking has resurrected the traditional art of making buttons from locally available materials. They are shaped and smoothed to slide easily through a button hole and are treated with natural tung oil which will stand up to hand washing and air drying. Wood buttons are round and come in small, medium, large sizes. In medium and large buttons, the holes are sized to accommodate thicker yarns up to a heavy worsted weight, but a hand quilting or crochet thread also works well. Smaller buttons have holes large enough for fingering yarn or thread.
