New hat design! January 13 2019

Baby Cardigans October 09 2016

I am really excited to add a new style of cardigans to my range. These little cuties I've hand knitted in wonderfully soft and warm Millamia merino wool which adds an extra luxury feel.

New Snoods! March 23 2015

Hands up who's still feeling cold? If you are anything like me you are still facing the day armed with a warm scarf or snood. With this in mind, even though Summer isn't too far away (I hope), I have launched my new range of soft chunky knit snoods

They are wonderfully warm as I've knitted them in a wool-rich yarn using a broken rib stitch.  This stitch provides a uniform look on each side of the garment a real depth to the snood to provide extra warmth.

There's a colour to suit both men and women so nobody needs to miss out!
