About

HELLO THERE!

Mama and Fred offers a collection of carefully selected hand knitted and crocheted pieces for babies and children.

Please note that our current turn around time is 4 weeks. Orders currently being taken for December – but I can no longer guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.

My name is Lucy and I live in Branton with my husband Colin and my little boy Freddie.
I am the owner and sole creative working at Mama & Fred – a small business creating hand knitted and crocheted baby wear and accessories.

I learnt to knit when I was very young as both my grandmothers were knitters, but I only really thought about starting up a business when I was pregnant with my little boy.
After he was born I returned to my day job as an accountant, but part time so that I could spend more time (looking after an exuberant 2 year old) and building up my business.

Starting its life as My Little Yarn Baby on Etsy, I moved to my own website shop and rebranded in March 217 to become Mama & Fred.

As well as the items available in my online shop I am always busy trying out new things and love a bespoke order, so do drop me a line if you have something in mind you would like me to make for you and your little one, or to give as a gift.

You can now subscribe to my newsletter at and receive 15% off your first order through my website 💕
