Chunky Knit Kits

Lauren Aston Designs is an all-female team of five based in our studio in Topsham, Devon.

Our days consist of designing knits, packing orders and generally bringing you fun and fabulous content. We have three lovely local knitters who essentially knit Christmas products all year round!

Founded in 2014 by Lauren in her loft, the business has since grown into a (somewhat) well oiled machine, bursting at the seams with wool.

Our goal is to bring you stylish, quality hand-knitted products made by us, and joyful designs and kits for yourself and your home. LAD is all about joy, colour and community.

Welcome to our new range of wool – it’s a Super Chunky British wool, available in four natural shades and so beautiful to knit with.

Our British wool comes from two types of sheep. Our Natural White is a Blue Faced Leicester yarn, and our three darker shades are Shetland.

Each just as tactile, but the BFL has a slightly softer finish. BFL is a little bit more silky with a very slight sheen whereas Shetland is squishy and bouncy.

Those descriptions are probably true for the sheep, too!
