I’m Mo, Mum of two and on a quest to warm the ankles of little ones. Walking out in the Peaks, and carrying my boy in a sling, I noticed that his trousers tended to ride up exposing bare ankles and leading to avoidable and rather unpleasant meltdowns. In the pre-shoe stage we would often head to the park in the pram with Moo wearing just a flimsy ankle sock. As we embraced potty training, the boy spent a lot of time parading around trouser-less, not ideal in the depths of a northern winter. I couldn’t seem to find anything that was suitable to keep his legs and ankles warm. Addressing these challenges led me to a mild and slightly unhealthy fascination with the baby legwarmer. In December 2018, armed with a new sewing machine and a brand new (and very angry) baby, I set about creating my beloved warmers.
My Legwarmers are made from Jersey Cotton so a thinner, stretchy material. Some are French Terry which is more snuggly. Our cuff material is 95% cotton and 5% elastane. We can add a Jersey lining and now have snuggly alpine fleece leg warmers in stock.
I am always happy to mix and match cuff colours - please just ask.
We make two sizes of leg warmers - large are longer and suitable for up to 3 year olds, small for up to 2 years. They should reach over the knee and can be scrunched down round the ankle.
The environment is important to us and we work with small amounts of fabric to reduce waste. We use our left over material to make reusable cloths and any scraps are donated to the local primary school. Our packaging is made from recycled card and we post out in brown paper. We shamelessly reuse and larger orders may be sent out in pre-loved boxes.
I’m not a trained seamstress and have taught myself to sew. Sometimes this goes wrong and a wonky stitch is often triggered by a crying baby. Please be kind if you have any issues and message me directly. I will deal quickly with any queries.
Do share photos of your little ones using our leg warmers. Long live the leg warmer! Mo x
