Make Your Own Beeswax Wraps Kit
A kit to make your own beeswax wraps! A great couple of hours of crafting entertainment.
These kits contain 3 different sized cotton fabric squares (20,25 and 30cm) to make your own beeswax wraps. They also contain two blocks of our secret blend of beeswax, pine resin and organic jojoba oil. Its the same recipe we use to make our pre made wraps. You will have all the instructions you need to make your own super sticky and flexible wraps that you can then use in your kitchen or lunch box as an alternative to clingfilm and tinfoil.
Ideal for any age (with differing levels of supervision for younger children) and a great craft project on a rainy day or in the school holidays.
The wraps are then easy to use and clean and should last you up to a year.
The packaging and instructions are all bilingual in English and Welsh.
About Beeswax Fabric Wraps
In 2018 I decided to reduce the amount of plastic we were using at home and as part of this I made myself some beeswax wraps. I spent a long time getting the recipe and method right and after all the effort I decided to make some for friends and family and then didn't stop and it grew into the business I have today! A year ago I left my job as a Physio in the NHS due to long term health problems and now have the perfect alternative career and am loving this new lifestyle!
Beeswax wraps, for those of you who haven't used them before are a reusable alternative to clingfilm and tinfoil. They are easy to clean, last about a year and are really sticky to form a great seal to keep your food fresh, but not sticky to the touch. You can use them for covering bowls, wrapping cheese, sandwiches, bread, avocado halves, making pouches for snacks, freezing leftover brownies - if that's likely to happen in your house! - the list of their uses is endless!
If you have used beeswax wraps before, why buy ours? Not all beeswax wraps are the same... we use local Anglesey beeswax, pine resin and organic jojoba oil to make sure the wraps are properly sticky and flexible but not sticky to the touch. It makes them effective but also a pleasure to use. They last a year, if not longer, with the right care. I have some that have been going a lot longer than that. We also use all recyclable packaging or reuse packaging that has been sent to us. The cardboard we use is FSC certified meaning it comes from sustainable woodlands. We are also making the switch to organic cotton because of the effect non organic cotton farms has on local water supplies and the soil. You'll be buying from a small business who supports local charities (we have a local donkey charity and 20% of the sales from our green sheep and forest camping packs goes to support them), gets involved in the local community and who loves to hear from people who buy from us.
If you are Welsh or are buying for someone who is Welsh or speak Welsh, all our packaging is bilingual and the wraps and DIY kits can be packed with either Welsh or English on the front.
I should also mention that we make a plant wax version as well which is vegan friendly. Get in touch if you want to find out more about this and how to order these through the Small Market website.
