Caron's Profile

About

Hi there, my name’s Caron, aka Monkey Shack Mama. I began crafting as a little girl, taught by my Mum and Grandma and have always been captivated by textiles and textures. When my daughter was born 13 years ago, a whole new creative world opened up. I had a few years being a full time stay at home Mum and together we experimented with every craft imaginable - it was an amazing time and inspiration seemed to come from every direction!

Making Sock Monkeys was a project that really caught our imagination and it was no surprise that having made my daughter some, requests from friends came thick and fast. Our Sock Monkeys soon took on a life of their own and before we knew it the Monkey Shack came into being, inhabited by characters dreamt up in bedtime stories.

Our Sock Monkeys soon took on a life of their own and before we knew it the Monkey Shack came into being, inhabited by characters dreamt up in bedtime stories.

Today, the Monkey Shack is where our Sock Monkeys stay whilst waiting for someone to come and whisk them away to a new loving home. Although we’re always delighted that our Sock Monkeys find someone special to look after them, with each and every one of them there’s a pang of sadness when they leave.

Monkey Shack Sock Monkeys are unique and special characters. All are especially cuddly, but no two are the same, so if you’re looking at offering one a place in your home and heart, choose carefully to ensure you’ll get along!

Who’d have thought...

...that despite my obsession with socks of every shape, size, pattern and colour, I very rarely wear them - can’t stand them on my feet. I’ve been known to go about my business, sockless and in open toe sandals in the midst of winter, with snow on the ground and sub zero temperatures. My toes never get cold and why waste fabulous socks on feet when they can become amazing Sock Monkey characters!

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy meeting the Monkey Shack team! xxx
