Calf was set up in April 2011 by me, Louise, in response to a competition run by the National Market Traders’ Federation encouraging applicants to “take their hobby to the next level”. Despite reaching the final round of the competition, trading in a local market proved to be more trouble/expensive than it was worth. Plus, the hats began to take on the rather pungent aromas of the Authentic Caribbean Cuisine stall next door; not good for a luxury product.
And so now you will find me at the occasional craft fair, in pop-up shops and online. I will always write an update on the site if I’m at an event, and will always post it on my Facebook page. Alternatively, if you see something you like but can’t commit without having a feel, just get in touch and we’ll see if we can arrange a taster.
I always aim to use only premium yarn to create attractive, warm and durable hats, and to sell those hats in a friendly and informative manner. So there.
