The original plain red poppy has a £1 donation to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. You can also purchase a version with pieces of silk trapped in between the fibres.
Either version is wet felted in my studio employing traditional techniques and is approximately 7-8cm in diameter.
A smaller more discreet version is also available with no beads, just a needle felted centre. This is in plain only and sometimes preferred by men.
For more causes to be proud of why not purchase a poppy in the Suffragette colours of purple, white and green?
