Enjoy a bit of culture with a side of comedy with this Cumbrian Numbers Cushion! Perfect for the dialect lover in your life, this cushion features a unique Cumbrian numeric system and a herdwick sheep print: ideal for those who want a fun and quirky way to learn more about the local dialect.
FUN FACT: Farmers only needed to count to 20 using this dialect, as when they were counting sheep, they would have a bunch of pebbles in one pocket, and when they reached 20, they would move a rock from one pocket to the other. Then at the end, they would just have a few pebbles to count (e.g. 5 pebbles would be 100 sheep) This saved them from losing count and having to start again!
The design has been digitally printed onto a beautifully high quality Unbleached Organic Drill Cotton. Each cushion has been handmade in the UK. There is also a zip for you to take the inner cushion in or out.
You can choose whether you would like to have just the cover, or the cover and the inner. If you choose for it to include an inner pad, the pad is filled with Duck Feather and Down. Please note this is the ONLY option for the inner.
