We make hand-crafted soft crochet toys of varying sizes, colours and shapes. They call it Amigurumi; we call it 'the best fun we can have'. We love taking custom orders.

Earnest amigurumi

Bears In Hoodies is a crochet obsessed duo based in London comprised of Mya and Vivienne. They've been bitten by the crochet bug since Christmas 2013 when Vivienne made a woolly snood for Mya.

In the short year that followed, a beautiful rivalry emerged that compelled us to learn, practice and perfect our skills. Amigurumi, by far, won out amongst all the crochet crafts. The word is a combination of 'ami' meaning crochet or knitted and 'nuigurumi' meaning stuffed toy.

We work in our living room in London and sometimes on trains and cafes (and basically anywhere we can). Then the finished animals go onto our bookshelves and we suspect they gossip about us when we're not there.

We opened our shop in March 2015 after a few successful in-person sales (and because we are rapidly running out of shelf-space)!

We work almost exclusively in cotton or wool which give a far cuter finish than acrylic yarn. Over the last year we've given many amigurumi gifts to our friends for weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, birthdays and as un-occasioned tokens of friendship. Because of this we wouldn't ever put up products that we would not give to our nearest and dearest. That's our simple quality promise.

We mainly work from patterns created by many amazing people around the world. Each listing will let you know the creator of the amigurumi pattern and a link to their websites. We will be posting our own creations as they come about - very soon, my dears, very soon.

Thank you for your time and attention to our humble little shop. We hope our creations bring you as much joy as they brought us in our making of them!
