Longies/Shorties/Soakers:


Small Hand Knit longies, knit using Patons Classic Wool in Jade Heather. These have an adorable owl applique on the leg. Applique was made with various wool yarns. Soft and cuddly and will keep your child dry. These have short rows in the bum for using over cloth diapers.

To ensure a proper fit please measure your child with their bulkiest diaper on.

Measurements unstretched are:

Waist = 12"

Hip (measured halfway down from waist) = 16"

Rise = 16"

Inseam = 7"

These are washed but need to be lanolized. I can lanolize them for you before I ship them, add 3 extra days before they will ship for drying time.

Felting will occur if washed incorrectly. Hand wash warm with wool wash or baby shampoo and lay flat to dry.

*Knit using the longies pattern from Dakine Knits: http://hyenacart.com/DaKineKnits/st/...es-PDF-Pattern

M/L Hand Knit shorties, knit using Patons Classic Wool in Magnolia with White trim. Soft and cuddly and will keep your child dry. These have short rows in the bum for using over cloth diapers.

These are SECONDS because my son decided to cut the skein with scissors in a number of places and I had to felt the ends together. This created bumps in the shorties in 3 spots. One on the gusset, one on the right leg close to the gusset, and one right above the left leg. All of these are on the front and can be seen in the last picture.

Dolls/Animals/Everything Else:

'Luckums' are pocket dolls ranging from 7"-10" in height depending on yarn used. They are stuffed with polyfil and have a simple embroidered face, to let the childs imagination create the expressions.

'Luckum' is a name my oldest son came up for his wooden gnome doll when he was 2 years old and I thought it was a great name for these dolls.


$16 ppd.



Sturdy and soft hand knit snake for your child's enjoyment. This snake was handknit with Kashmira yarn, filled with polyfill stuffing, and has wool yarn embroidered eyes. It holds up to rough and tumble play as my boys have shown me :)

Measures ~22" from tip of tongue to tail.

Machine washable on warm/dry on low. This will felt the snake some but makes it more sturdy for rough play. I usually wash ours in a lingerie bag to keep the wool lint from messing with the washing machine.

$21 ppd

Measures 38" from mouth to tail (not including tongue). The body is 7" around.

Hand knit scarf with a snake head and tail. It is very soft and warm.

Measures 57", not including the tongue.

Knit with Woolease with embroidered eyes.

Machine wash warm / lay flat to dry. I usually wash ours in a lingerie bag to keep the wool lint from messing with the washing machine.

$26 ppd.




Eucalyptus sachets are great for storing with clothes or woolies. Eucalyptus is a great moth and bug deterrent.

These are approximately 4" x 4" in size. The ones above were made with a navy blue and white polka dot cotton fabric. Fabrics will change depending on what I have available.

I hand picked leaves from our tree in our front yard and then laid them out to dry. After they were done drying I used them to stuff the sachets above. We do not use any pesticides on our trees or grass.

$8 ppd each.
