Handmade knitwear. Shawls, scarves, booties and baby sweaters made from wools collected from around the world including Alpaca, Merino and even Possum. The patterns have been found on Lindy’s travels to New Zealand, South Africa, Shetland and Quebec and have interesting stories from the people she has met. All the profits from her knitwear go towards needles and wool she uses to teach young offenders in prison near her home.
Waggle Dolls. Inspired by Waldorf and Folk Art traditions. Handmade using only natural and recycled materials, and filled with washed and carded sheep’s wool, creating a wonderfully comforting toy. Kathy is Norfolk born and bred and has had a long creative career working with textiles and re-cycling materials. Special commissions taken.

Handmade Proddy and hooky rag rugs. Rag rug making was once a common pastime for working people in town and country. Nadine follows tradition, using sacking for the foundation and recycled clothing for the pile, in natural fibres such as felted wool or soft cotton jersey. Proddies are deep and shaggy; hookies have a looped pile and are hard wearing. They are worked completely by hand using minimal resources. Quirky and colourful, these rugs have a welcoming, homely charm.
