Just for fun

The weather in Auckland is quite abysmal, to say the least. Not only is it raining constantly it has turned extremely chilly again. Out comes the gas heater again, on go the electric blankets by night & overcoats by day. Crazy seeing as though we're well into the spring months now!

So all around the country I can imagine mums beginning to tear their hair out, trying to come up with things for the youngsters during the school/kindy break. By now, your second week, you're probably looking for a few more toys to keep them amused? So our Little Kiwis Nest photo picks could be the type of things you need to sprighten up your rainy days.

Remember, all the goodies on Little Kiwis Nest are handcrafted by stay-at-home mums/grannies/or simply kids-at-heart!

Welcome Anne's Knitwear!

We are delighted to have Sue and Anne of Anne's Knitwear join the list of talented designers on little kiwi's nest!

About them....

Anne’s Knitwear creates a range of pure merino wool garments for babies and toddlers in classic styles that never date.

We are two grandmothers (with six grandchildren between us), who have been knitting these little garments for more years than we care to count and we know they work! We made them for our children and now we’re making them for yours!

All our garments are handcrafted using domestic knitting machines and pieced together by hand so that they retain all the softness you need to put on baby.

We’re passionate about natural fibres for babies and promote the use of wool at every opportunity.
