Cumbrian Dialect Numbers – Tea Towel


Enjoy a bit of culture with a side of comedy with this Cumbrian Numbers Tea Towel! Perfect for the dialect lover in your life, this tea towel 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. So count your blessings and grab a tea towel today!


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! 

It’s always been important to me to find quality materials here in the UK – thats why this tea towel is printed on pale cream premium cotton and has been printed and made here too! It measures approx 48 x 76 cm and can be washed at 30°. It’s the perfect tea towel for hanging over your oven or Aga, or even framing!! 
Supplied folded with a paper wrap.

If you LOVE this design and already want more things with it on, you can find it on coasters, prints and cards! Woo!
