Our Story

Luxurious children's knitwear made in Britain by Picaloulou

Picaloulou offers a collection of hand knitted jumpers, cardigans and accessories for little Boys and Girls aged 0-10 years. Warm and wearable, our small range of limited edition styles are understated and relaxed - a modern take on the traditional hand-crafted knitwear of yesteryear. Everything is designed and made entirely in Great Britain, using only natural yarns and all pieces are designed to be tough wearing for both boys and girls.

For little girls we have added some Pinks and Plums to the mix, but our unique colour palettes are wonderfully soft, muted and flattering. Choose from traditional cable jumpers, striking Fair Isle yoke sweaters and cardigans, cosy animal scarves and cute beanie hats. And since all our garments are handmade - each one is unique!

All our hand knit pieces have been lovingly hand crafted by our small team of talented hand knitters scattered across the UK. Ethically produced, our knits are soft and snuggly enough for little people, and practical and wearable for little ‘pickles’ everywhere - wherever they go and whatever get up to! Our natural and breathable yarns come from UK farms and have been processed and hand dyed exclusively for us in British mills, using GOTS approved dyes. They are machine washable on a gentle wool cycle, to make wearing and caring for them easy.

We have recently started working with some wonderful British factories to produce some new machine knit styles, manufacturing to the same quality standards as our hand knits. These items use fine Italian yarns which are soft and gentle on the skin.
