Makers Spotlight: Love Wool

Made with wool & a whole lotta love!

If you’ve been following along on social media you would have noticed that we received in some gorgeous, handmade products from a little business called Love Wool.

We decided to delve a little deeper and give you more info about one of our 100% local brands in store. We do our best to promote and stock as many locally made products as possible.

Love Wool

A mother and daughter team from Randburg, Simone and Isabel hand make each and every product they sell. Their attention to detail and crochet work push their products a level above the rest. Skills that have clearly been mastered over the years!

It all started in 2012 when Isabel spent almost every night crocheting beanies for her daughter. Eventually they had enough to have their own stand at their very first market. Since then they have been doing loads of custom orders and started making baby items after their first “Rock A Baby” market. These items have proved to be especially cute and loved by our customers as well.

Their adorable range consists of items such as wooden teeters, baby rattles, dummy clips and more.

Thus far our customers have had a great “ooh” and “aahh” reaction to their products in store. The owl doorstops and heart shaped cushions are just too cute for words! BUT we have to admit that our firm favorites have to be Luna & Felix the bears. These two have also become famous on social media.
