Welcome To Coco Kids!

Welcome to our new venture together! We look forward to meeting your custom handknitting needs!

We have known each other for what feels like much longer than about a year and a half, and decided to join together in a custom handknit business when we noticed we were each asking the same questions about gaining cottage licenses. We could've easily become 'competition' to each other, but working together we are able to offer a wide and varied range of items, as well as having support and sounding boards to help us get started.
Introducing Coco Kids - Ali, Julia and Kate

Now we've done all the hard work in getting started and launched - now comes the fun part! The knitting! We're all knitting and yarn addicts, part of the reason why we all get on so well.

So, browse the blog, see what takes your fancy and feel free to visit our individual blogs to get a better idea of who we are and what we can do for you!
