Welcome and thank you for stopping by Red Squirrel UK’s Etsy site.

Each of Red Squirrel's handmade creations is crafted in our West Sussex home based studio. Our goal is to produce quality, honest baby wear using carefully selected fibres with functional, whimsical design.

Great care is placed forth in the construction of our baby wear. With our own little ones in mind, designs are based on comfort, length of wear, durability and the quality of fabrics and fibres we use. We locally source all materials that go into our baby goods, many of which are certified organic or 100% pure, natural fibre.

Red Squirrel offers a selection of handmade sweaters, rompers, dresses, bonnets, booties and blankets fit for the littlest ones of the household. They are prefect for new arrivals, baby showers, holidays, and birthday gifts. Baby will be happy with the soft, comfortable feel of each garment. Parents and gift givers will be pleased with the effort and care put forth for their very special little one.

Thank you again for visiting our Etsy site and supporting your handmade community.

Custom orders:

We are happy to consider custom orders, including requests for different colour schemes and sizes. Please do not hesitate to email us with these inquiries. Depending on the custom order, prices may differ from those indicted on our other products. This will normally be due to additional material and labour.

Washing and Care:

Although cotton and wool are resilient fibres, we suggest using a delicate washing cycle and laying flat to dry all crocheted items made with these materials. Please do not tumble dry or iron crocheted items. Yarn ends have been carefully tied and sewn into each garment to ensure durability, but it is always best to wash handmade items with care.

Colours and Monitors:

In selecting photographs to showcase our products, we make every effort to choose ones that depict the actual colour of the items in person. Please be aware that depending on the calibration of the computer monitor used to view our products, colours may vary. We attempt to include a colour description of each item with the narrative to aid in your decision.


We take pride in the materials we locally source for our baby wear. Here’s some information on the ones you’ll regularly see throughout our collection:

Cotton: Soft 100% organic cottons take feature in most of our sweaters and rompers. Cotton is not only breathable and hypoallergenic, but suitable for both heats in the summer and cool temperatures in the winter due to its insulation properties. This highly comfortable, natural fabric makes our sweaters ideal for year round wear.

Wool: Pure 100% Wool sourced from England plays an important part in our winter and blanket collection. Once again a natural fibre, it is breathable and has insulation properties that can both warm and help cool in different temperatures. Wool is extremely durable and has natural fire retardant properties.

Felt: The felt that we have carefully selected for our baby shoes is a mixture of wool and viscose. Viscose is commonly considered a natural fibre, being specially processed from wood pulp. Don’t let the thought of wood pulp detour you from the fact that the finished product is unbelievably soft and flexile. The texture of our felt is superior to the scratchy and rough felt you often find in craft stores. It’s light weight and comes in a beautiful selection of unique colours. And of course, it is locally sourced.
