Announcement   Hello, my name and (that of my shop) is Sally Nencini. I am based in Norwich, Norfolk, and am a designer and maker with a background in fashion but have always loved textiles, surface pattern, texture and vintage fabrics.
I studied fashion at the Royal College of Art and had a career in fashion, finishing off working for Levi's before deciding to stay at home and look after my three lovely kids!
Now they are all at school I have some time to think and create again and have been working with lambswool making toys, cushions and baby blankets, machine knitting with my own patterns. I also do bespoke hand embroidered upholstery. For more info visit my website at sallynencini.com

About

Knitted Lambswool Creations!

Hi there!
I have been making things for as long as I can remember, it's what makes me happy!
I was born and brought up co Armagh, N Ireland then moved to London in 1996 to study Fashion at the Royal College of Art where I met my husband and ended up staying!
I have worked in the fashion industry in the UK and laterly Belgium where I designed for Levi's Europe.
Now that my children are a little bit bigger I run my knitted textile business, designing and making and also work as an Art and Textile technician - all good fun!
when my youngest son was at nursery I enrolled in a short course to learn experimental machine knitting. I just loved this process and was given a domestic knitting machine from a friend who had one in her loft. It was then I started designing and knitting and opened an Etsy shop to sell my creations, that's how it all began!
I find working and designing in lambswool so satisfying, there is such a fantastic range of colours the patterns are endless! I get my design inspiration from memories of my childhood toys, I love to collect old Galt and Abbatt wooden picture puzzles and card games. I also love Scandinavian imagery and colour.
I started my label Sally Nencini in 2009, designing and knitting lambswool cushions and toys from my home in South London. Now I send stock to galleries and small independent shops throughout the UK, I also sell to shops in Australia and Japan. My production is still pretty small scale but I have some help when things get busy - Pam is a lovely lady who helps with the knitting when I have large orders, she is based in Scotland. More recently I have added a range of small lambswool blankets, scarves, hats and gloves which I get knitted in a small family run factory just outside Edinburgh, Scotland.
However I still work from home, which is now Norwich, Norfolk. The knitting machine is pretty busy and I sew all the toys and cushions myself, I just love making things!
