Chunky Knits for Cosy Night and Colourful Days

Hello, thank you for stopping by, here's a brief introduction about me and my knitting business for anyone I'm yet to meet;

I knit from my studio in Devon. I drink far too much tea & eat way too may biscuits. I'm besotted with my Cockapoo Harry who's 2 years old, crazy as you like and allergic to grass. I launched my business in early 2015, having moved to Devon when my Husband was offered a job in Exeter, I couldn't find a job I wanted so I decided to create one & the rest is history...

A bit about my work - I use 100% Merino Wool which has to be the greatest material ever. Colour is everything, whether it's fabulous brights or fine neutrals, each one is effervescent in it's own way. I mainly make soft furnishings (particularly blankets) and am building the DIY section as much as possible so you too can have a bash. Everything is hand knit on giant needles, I then hand process all the items to help with quality and lifespan.

If you'd like to talk about any custom knit's or can't find the colour you're after, please feel free to get in touch and we'll have a chat.

Thanks for stopping by,

    Owner, Designer, Knitter

    As well as me knitting away, I also have some amazing local knitters and helpers giving me a hand along the way. I love knitting (obvs), colour, Harry Potter, anything interior design and think a cup of tea and biscuit can solve most problems.

  • Harry the Cockapoo Puppy


    Named after Harry Potter, this guy loves Adele, cardboard boxes, and sleeping anywhere inconvenient. He's allergic to grass and most foods but deals with it like a champ. His main roles in the business are top model and chief spirit raiser.
