About Mama & Fred


Mama and Fred offers a collection of carefully selected hand knitted and crocheted pieces for babies and children.

My name is Lucy and I live in Sheffield with my husband Colin and my little boy Freddie.
I am the owner and sole creative working at Mama and Fred – a small business making hand knitted and crocheted clothes, toys and blankets for babies and children.

I learnt to knit when I was very young as both my grandmothers were knitters, but I only really thought about starting up a business when I was pregnant with my little boy.
After he was born I returned to my day job, but dropped my hours to part time so that I could spend more time (looking after an exuberant 16 month old) and trying to build up my business.
Starting its life as My Little Yarn Baby on Etsy, I moved to my own website shop. Since then we have had a rebrand and become Mama & Fred

As a business it is still in its infancy, I wont be quitting the day job any time soon, but I am enjoying the journey and all the things I am learning about running an online business!

As well as the items available in my online shop I am always busy trying out new things and love a bespoke order, so do drop me a line if you have something in mind you would like me to make for you and your little one, or to give as a gift.
