About Us
The garments are knitted by me (Jill) and my sister-in-law Jane. I was taught to knit by my mother when I was about seven years old and I remember knitting my first jumper before I was ten. I knitted on and off after that, having most productive times when I had my own two boys and when my grandchildren were born. When I set up my natural skincare business (Doozle) in 2010 (having had a career in child protection social work) I made Baby Butter as a priority, being very aware of the toxic chemicals in many baby products on the market. For fun, I started knitting baby bootees in soft and natural yarns, to sell with the Baby Butter at craft and gift fairs. This really gave me the ‘baby knitting’ bug and now I can’t seem to stop. I love choosing fabulous yarns and deciding on colour combinations. Unfortunately, I can buy these beautiful yarns faster than I can knit! My sister-in-law Jane is an amazing knitter, creating garments for family and friends but also having done some contract knitting for top London stores. She is a real perfectionist and is great at designing and adapting, combining the best features from several different patterns and adding her own twist. She is also a very fast knitter which is a real bonus for me when orders come in thick and fast.
