Workshops – rather than simply buy a chunky knit blanket come and join me on one of my relaxed and friendly (and super fun!) workshops.

Locations – usually hosted around the Ribble Valley in Lancashire in lovely garden centres or pretty village halls. I also love to host arm-knitting 'parties' at your home.

Choose your own colour – you get to select from a huuuggeee array of 100% un-spun merino wool colours to suit your style.

Step by step – no knitting experience is necessary! I teach you bit by bit how to arm knit.

Up close and personal - the workshops are limited in numbers (usually only 6 people) meaning you get a lovely personal experience and I can untangle you if you make a mistake!

Blanket or cushion... Totally up to you! Choose from a blanket or a cushion workshop.

Hypoallergenic – suitable for anyone who suffers from allergies, hayfever and who normally cannot tolerate wool near their skin. Merino fibres deter allegens and is suitable for babies and their sensitive skin.

Flame Retardant – this was a game changer for me! As most of us like to light candles or have an open fire in our homes these days. If a flame did catch your blanket or cushion it would not go up in flames unlike an inexpensive acrylic alternative!

Self Cleansing – the merino wool repels water and is stain and odour resistant.

Breathable – merino wool regulates to your body temperature, keeping you warm when you feel cold and cool when you're feeling hot.

hi, I’m Ally the name behind Allybobsknits

I live in the beautiful Ribble Valley, Lancashire with my partner and our cockapoo. I love nothing more than
spending quality time with my children and grandchildren.

I've enjoyed knitting for many, many years and always taken a keen interest on interior design, so when
I discovered the perfect wool to combine my two passions Allybobsknits was born!

I only use the highest quality 100% unspun pure merino wool to hand-knit my products, so, take a peek online and treat yourself - or book onto one of my workshops to learn how to arm-knit yourself!
