Our Story & Press

The Wonky Woolins began in 2018 as a Transition Year school project when I was fifteen years old. I had always been a keen crafter and had taught myself to crochet at twelve. I was inspired to begin creating Wonky Woolins when I found a collection of knitted toys which had been passed through my family for generations. These unique toys unlike the mass produced generic ones I had grown up around had survived years of play and adventures from the time my granny was a child. Each toy had been handmade and made to last for generations of love. This inspired me to create The Wonky Woolins for others with the hope that they too could be cherished for a lifetime by adults and children alike.
