The janeyB Story
Jane is the drving force and insperation behind the janeyB brand. After leaving Art college in the early 1980’s Jane worked for a number of acclaimed knitwear and clothing designers in London, ensuring the highest quality, production and development for these luxury brands which sold worldwide. During these years she gained a unique insight into what makes an exceptional crafted hand knitted garments. Over the past few years Jane has been busy raising a family and studying for a Masters Degree in Cultural Astronomy & Astrology. This lead to writing research papers on esoteric subjects and presenting them at University Conferences all over Europe. However, Jane had remained passionate about the fashion industry and missed working in a creative environment surrounded by beautiful products. So to get back in the game she got to work establishing a cottage industry of experienced knitters and began fashioning her dream. Remodelling vintage knitting patterns, a superior finish along with sumptuously blended yarns encompass the janeyB vision as a brand signature.
Jane has spent the past year working in local Further Education Colleges and Universities teaching Fashion and Textiles to 16 to 22 year olds. She has over 30 years valuable Industry experience and enjoys sharing that knowledge with our future fashionistas.
A janeyB jumper is created employing hand dyed blended yarns, including British spun Blue Faced Leicester, Silk, Cashmere, alpaca and cotton. Each knit is skilfully made by hand with absolute attention to detail from each member of the janey B team of artisan knitters, transforming everyday knitwear into an exceptionally unique investment.
With the fashion industry placing huge importance on source and origin, the team at janeyB is committed to sustainability and collaborates closely with yarn producers across Britain to bring you an honest, hand crafted, premium hand knit.

Premium British Knitwear
Jane works with British artisan hand knitters using only our luxury yarns and two knitting needles.
The need for highly skilled hand knitters declined with mass produced machine knitwear becoming more profitable. Jane aims to preserve this beautiful craft by bringing it into the current fashion realm. For us at janeyB nostalgia for knitting isn’t the drive, it’s the unrivalled skill and passion for the craft. Jane blends this artisan skill with a contemporary twist to vintage British designs for a collection that ignites and showcases this traditional quality craftsmanship, giving you a unique and timeless piece.
