Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

With the exception of ready made pieces, all items are knitted to each customers specifications. As a customer you have the option of choosing the size, colour and material used to make your blanket, bedrunner, pet bed or wreath etc. The yarn is then ordered from our supplier on the basis of your purchase, then handmade to your specifications making each piece unique to you. As a result of this personalised service returns are not permitted on custom made pieces but will be accepted on ready made items.

Sizing details

We offer a range of sizes across all our products however if there is something in particular your require please feel free to request a custom order. As with all handmade knitted products sizes can vary slightly due to the shifting nature of the yarn.

Care instructions

All items are made from un-spun yarn which is both luxurious and delicate, so it is recommended that it is handled with care until they felt in over time. Our entire product range is ideal for moderate use or display pieces, although they are made from either acrylic or merino wool both need care and attention while being handled with care.

Merino or Acrylic?

We use 100% merino wool that is 22 microns for extra softness and is sourced from small family run farms where the sheep are only sheared in the warmer months. Merino is a luxuriously soft wool, it naturally regulates body temperature, it is hypoallergenic, water, stain and odour resistant. In addition each item in the range has a hand sewn genuine 100% leather tag.

Unlike merino wool, acrylic is a manmade fibre and as a result is vegan friendly. In keeping with the vegan friendly nature of our acrylic products we only use faux leather tags on this range. Acrylic has the same chunky look and feel as merino without the higher price point and especially good for those allergic to wool.


Occasionally give your piece a good shake out and due to it's natural elasticity it will return to it's original shape. Stains can be gently spot cleaned with a damp cloth or if necessary dry cleaned. Due to the nature of any natural wool product, some shedding may occur but eventually this will slow as the wool felts with gentle care and handling.

This yarn can be washed in a large capacity washing machine in a cold hand wash cycle on the lowest spin cycle, please dry flat and do NOT tumble. The larger weightier blankets and bedrunners may require professional cleaning. Due to the nature of chunky yarn, some shedding and flyaways will occur, please trim off any loose strands.
