THE VINTAGE BABY COMPANY
Luxury hand knits for baby

About / Business Information
The business as it is today has grown, as most do, out of necessity. Whilst many years ago I knitted for my own children and kept all of my patterns from then. They were put away in an old suitcase and forgotten over time
Children and work took over anything else I had planned in life, but there is always a turning point and that for me was when the children left home and I had extra time on my hands
Then came my saviour. Speaking to several people who, like me, just loved the vintage look or style on babies but could not find it anywhere I remembered my pattern base.
I am now being asked by new or due mommies to knit for their new babies, and so I started.
All our knitted items are hand knitted traditionally and never just hand-finished, we deliver our knitwear wrapped in heirloom tissue so they can be kept and handed down for generations. We also offer a gift wrap service, just add this on purchasing
I have now been knitting for over 40 years and still never tire of seeing a completed item and the pictures that are sent from my clients
I now have an exceptionally large vintage pattern collection and through time have used several yarns which I still use today
Merino: very wearable and washable. Used to regulate babies temperature as it has great qualities and super soft Cashmere; Luxury itself so soft and cosy, hand wash only.
Blends; watch the website for new blends and new prices to match Aran; tradition Scottish knitwear knitted by a traditional Scot
If there is anything you cannot find on the site or it states it has sold out please contact me and I will advise if I can undertake the project for you.
My pram suit list opens each year in July for winter babies and this year we are adding baby bundles with sleeves for those chilly outings
I have, if needed, other knitters I can call on when it gets a bit mad and timing is a factor
We do premature baby clothing which can be reduced to exceptionally small sizes if required
Thank you for reading and I look forward to knitting for you soon
