Lots of Lovely Wraps

I found a gorgeous varigated yarn in the store recently, and I just could not resist!
It makes lovely wrap and bonnet sets.

I chose 8 of my favourite colours that I thought would match a spring collection of 
photoprops or a neutral seletion, whichever you prefer

Choose from Heather, Raspberry, Coral or Silver

How about Biscuit, Old Gold, Sage or Teal?

The wraps are approx. 88cm x 45 cm and are very stretchy
The bonnets have wider ties and a ridge detail for some lovely texture for your photo shoot

Made in a soft luxury acrylic yarn, you can pop these in the wash 
between photo shoots, or if a little baby has an accident on them 

Available exclusively in my Etsy shop here 


Little brown bears

I received some darling in-use photos of my brown bear set today!
Beauty by Blair Photography shared her darling photos with me, take a look....

Newborn romper with bear bonnet and toy.... look at those little toes 💗

And another using my romper on its own.
I am just loving the neutral colour themes, they are so versatile.
Creams and browns, beiges and greys go so well together and make for timeless
newborn baby photos.

These were all made of mohair, but I also make them in a gorgeous soft fluffy alpaca yarn.
