Red Steam Engine Tea Cosy

A bright red hand knitted tea cosy featuring a black locomotive with white steam, pulling a carriage on one side. The other side is plain.

Hand knitted products do vary, but there is also a slight variation in design. Both feature a locomotive and carriage on one side, but one also has a black band along the bottom and a small black circular top, the other doesn’t. See the photos for both designs. These fit a normal sized tea pot (2 pints/4 mugs)

Why not pair up with our tin of tea bags featuring the Flying Scotsman, a bright red S&DR mug or a coaster?


This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


This cosy has been lovingly knitted for you by the Bishop Auckland Knit and Knatter group. Bishop Auckland is located within a gnat’s crotchet of the S&DR 1825 line which extended to Bishop Auckland in 1842. Now the Weardale Railway links to Bishop Auckland West and more exciting developments are planned there soon.

Did you know, that although tea cosies probably came into use in this country when tea was introduced to Britain in the 1660s, the first documented use of a tea cosy in Britain was in 1867?
