Monochrome mittens

Our Story

Handmade with love

I am a Brighton based mum of three, knitwear designer and lover of all things handmade. I was taught to knit by my mum as a little girl and then took up knitting again when I was pregnant with my first daughter. After some encouragement from friends I bought an old vintage knitting machine and started Button and Blue in 2015. I so enjoyed designing and making my first collection and was thrilled when it was well received. In 2017 I launched a new adventure for Button and Blue, making my designs available to make your own with my first range of knitting kits.

Each part of Button and Blue is carried out with love and attention to detail. The materials used are carefully chosen to ensure they are ethically sourced and of the highest quality.

My style is minimal, fun and current and each piece is designed especially with little ones in mind. The wool is machine washable and soft and fine rather than bulky, hand-wash only wool. There are also design features especially suitable for babies and toddlers, such as the high contrast monochrome animals which young babies are drawn to.

Our Knitting Kits

Carefully chosen and ethically sourced

The kits make it simple to make your own contemporary knitwear for little ones!

Only the finest natural fibres are used in my knitting kits. The knitting kits contain 100% merino wool, chosen because it's incredibly soft and luxurious. It's also non-irritating for sensitive skin and helps to regulate body temperature by being both insulating and breathable. This makes the fibre perfect for dressing babies and toddlers and to knit with too.

Each item included in the kits has been thoughtfully chosen and sourced, from the organic cotton kit bags to the recycled paper patterns and tags. The knitting needles are biodegradable bamboo and the kits are plastic free.

A big thank you to Bright Mama for the very lovely photo of her and her kit!
