About

Knitting is my passion and I rarely go anywhere without some. My favourite items to knit are baby and toddler patterns and with two teenage children for who it is no longer 'cool' to be seen in Mum's handknits, ETSY gives me an outlet to create beautiful garments while feeding my addiction of buying more and more wool.

Merino wool is incredibly warm in winter and cool in the summer as it has the ability to breathe with the skin. It causes no irritation, scratchiness or prickle - perfect to be worn next to baby's skin. It provides an insulating layer next to your child's skin, can absorb one third of its weight in moisture before feeling wet, resists soiling and the build-up of odour meaning it doesn't need washing as often as synthetics. It is naturally fire-retardant. This makes merino one of the safest fibres to have next to the skin, especially for babies and young children.

Merino wool is a renewable resource, is biodegradable and kinder to the environment than oil-based synthetics which contribute to global pollution.
