Smocks

Here at Tall Yarns we love smocks, and our very own label, Layercake, is a growing collection of favourite knit-wear and smocks (garments we wear when we're knitting). It was created in response to Tall Yarns customers wanting to buy the smocks we were wearing on the stand at the shows we exhibit at. The first Knitting Smocks were introduced in 2010, followed by Spinning Pinnies, Hi-Lo Bloomers, Jackets and the Dyeing Tabard and complemented by Bohemia petticoats.

New Wool Smocks and Tabards have just been added - limited availability, when they are gone, they are gone!

"Do you sell pattern of your smocks?"
We are often asked if we sell patterns for our smocks. We have considered this at length and this is our answer:
The reason our dresses are both effective and flattering is because we put a lot of thought and consideration into the combination of their shape and the specific fabrics we choose to make them in. We see so many examples of garments (both home-made as well as store-bought) that in our opinion are made using a bad combination of pattern, fabric and fit. We don't want the same fate to befall our designs. So by making them ourselves, we control both pattern and fabric and by selling them ourselves we have a big hand in guiding our customers towards a good fit. However difficult we find it to decline the requests (because we understand the motivation behind them!), we will not change this approach.
