Announcement   Sootie Limetree is full of knitted bits and hand drawn illustrations made to brighten your day. We use traditional hand knitting methods and materials, but add a modern twist, mixing vintage fabrics with contemporary design.

Every item is hand knitted by me using high quality Aran, cashmere and merino wools, as studies show they can improve little ones' sleeping patterns. They are all hand sewn and stuffed from scratch, so please allow three weeks for orders to be shipped.

Find new products, shop updates and other general nonsense on Facebook and Instagram @sootielimetree.

We are expecting a baby and I wanted to get something special, so I had a bespoke doll made of our Italian Greyhound and it is the BEST. I am so impressed with the attention to detail, it’s just perfect and our imminent arrival is going to love it! Thank you Gillian! X

About

I've never been very good at sitting still.

I moved from Scotland to England when I was seven, which meant LOTS of long car journeys. There were no backseat DVD players when I was a kid, so after exhausting every type of Fashion Wheel pattern I could, (remember them?) my Granny taught me to knit, so I started doing that instead. And I haven't stopped.

There are no machines involved in the making of Sootie Limetree toys. I'd love to say that was because I was taking a moral stance about manufactured goods for kids, but it's more that I'm not very good at using them, and they make knits go what my Granny called 'all oosie' (I think that means wavy).

So thanks for popping over, and if you want to know anything else you can find me still knitting with a slightly erratic look on my face, (although now not so much in the back of cars) and on Twitter @sootie_limetree
