    The Hundred Acre Wood as a knitter would see it: with unraveling sweaters and carefully guarded yarn balls.

    Artist Chamisa Kellogg has transformed the Hundred Acre Wood into a place of yarny delights in this original fabric, created just for Little Skein. You'll see the dreamy landscape of the original Ashdown Forest and its immediately recognizable tree tunnel, as well as most wonderful thing a honey-loving bear could want in his forest: bees, honey, and friends.

    My sock zips are carefully hand-crafted out of my signature cotton-linen fabric, lined with a squishy fleece interfacing, and include another custom fabric for the interior. If you'll be carrying the project bag by itself, you might want to add a wristlet handle to your order. I usually pop my project bag into my purse, so almost always forgo the handle; it really is an optional addition.

    My sock zips:

    - Are sized for a single skein project.

    - Are approx. 10" to 10.5" wide and 7.5" to 8" tall, with an 7" by 3.5" rectangular base

    - Have fabric tabs at the ends of the zipper, made of the coordinating interior print, for a polished and adorable look

    - Include a "word ring" that can be used as a connector for other bags or handles.

    - Are machine stitched with beautiful top-stitching and fully enclosed seams

    - Are created with love in a kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and smoke-free studio.

    Optional wristlet handles are 9 inches long from tip to tip, with a 1 inch swivel clasp that clips onto the bag's word ring and a 6 inch fabric open loop.

    Each bag is carefully handcrafted, so you should expect there to be some variation in fabric placement, as well as minor variations in size or shape. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Please let me know if you're not completely delighted with your purchase.

  • I am delighted to introduce you to the wonderful makers who collaborated with me to create the Hundred Acre Wood kit.

    Designer Helen Stewart of the Curious Handmade podcast created the centerpiece of the collection, the Hundred Acre Wood shawl. She’s known for her feminine and beautifully-wearable accessory designs that are soothing and relaxing to knit.

    Hand-dyer Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers created and hand-dyed the scrumptious yarn palette in her studio in New Mexico. The gradient color set is a work of art, with underwashes of common colors and gently shifting hues from raisin-brown purple to forest green.

    Artist Chamisa Kellogg created the original illustrations that became the fabric in the kit’s project bag, and which pepper the entire kit. Chamisa’s style evokes the very best of childhood: the dreamy sense that something wonderful is always right around the corner.

    Also in the collection are treasures from some of my favorite makers:
    The Nome Knitter | Honeycomb progress keeper
    Tuft Woolens | Honeybee hand lotion & lip balm
    Handmades by Olivia | hand-embroidered zipper pouch
    Leslie Wind, jewelry artist | Kindred Spirits shawl pin
    Perfect Paperie | Love of Honey bookmarks
    Preserved maple leaves

    and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Hundred Acre Wood kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.


    We hope you love our creations!
