granniesinc.co.ukIf your own grandmother is not much cop with a pair of needles, but you still like the idea of handmade knitwear to your specifications, then at GranniesInc.co.uk you can pay someone else’s grandma to make you a hat, scarf, snood or wrist-warmers.
You decide on the colours you want it made in, pick the size and any extras — a pompom, bow or some tassels, perhaps — and then a granny gets knitting for you.
The prices start at £34 and all items are made from 100 per cent British spun merino wool.
Delivery times will vary depending on which granny you choose and how busy she is. But expect to have your item within eight days, sent by first-class post for £3.95.
