Knitted bits and hand drawn illustrations made to brighten your day.
Hello! I'm Gillian, also known as Sootie Limetree. Here's a picture of me knitting, which is how I spend most of my time.
I moved from Scotland to England when I was seven, which meant LOTS of long car journeys. There were no backseat DVD players when I was a kid, so my Granny taught me to knit - and I haven’t stopped.
There are no machines involved in the making of Sootie Limetree toys. I’d love to say that was because I was taking a moral stance about manufactured goods for kids, but it’s more that I’m not very good at using them, and they make knits go what my Granny called ‘all oosie’ (I think that means wavy).
So as a result every piece is sewn by hand. This makes each toy slightly different - each one is truly unique. We’re also committed to making heirloom products that are not only built to last, but are good to the planet. Using biodegradable yarns - renewable resources that have been farmed in low pesticide environments - and plant based fibre from bamboo.
All Sootie Limetree toys are handmade from scratch, so please allow two weeks for delivery.
