These 3” hand-knit organic cotton facial buffs are based on a Japanese pattern called a tawashi. After developing the jute dish scrubbers we realized that they would make an excellent exfoliating buff for face and body as well, with the addition of alternating rows of jute and soft organic cotton; these 100% cotton versions give a more gentle exfoliation appropriate for sensitive skin. The knit texture provides an excellent gentle exfoliation to remove some of the most stubborn dirt and oil, and the organic cotton helps your cleanser to foam. Unlike most other exfoliating facial puffs these are 100% natural and can go straight into the compost at end-of-life and they're reusable for quite some time, using far fewer resources than disposable cotton pads.
Otters & Acorns owner/maker, Nicole Briscoe, is such a skilled craftsperson that she couldn't fit all of her skills under one brand umbrella. Beginning her crafting with Pixielations making free-play toys and games for children, then expanding into hand-painted peg dolls, she wanted a way to separate her passion for fibre arts from her children's products and launched Otters and Acorns as the home for all things knit, crocheted, woven etc, always using 100% natural fibres so all products are compostable when they've served their purpose.
