Bespoke Dog Coats
Knitting and recycling to raise funds for dogs.
Welcome to my hobby website
where I sell hand knitted dog coats to
fundraise for dog charities.
Ready-made or made-to-measure coats
for any dog, at 55p per inch length of coat.
All profit to smaller dog charities.

A threefold increase in costs to continue running this site means I shall have to build a new site elsewhere, this website will remain visible but will not be updated and the linked webmail address will cease to be monitored on 10th May 2017.
'Bespoke' will continue under a slightly different name but I shall remain contactable throughout the summer on: email@example.com
The new site will be available before the Autumn and the new address will be advised here as soon as it is is confirmed. (probably lynnsknitteddogcoats.co.uk) Thank you.
Please be aware that after May 10th, the only changes I shall be able to make to this entire website is to unpublish existing pages, not update anything.
Recycle your unwanted yarns and buttons or buy a 'ready-made'
hand knitted dog coat to fundraise for dog charities.

4.5.17 The final 2 donations of money raised in 16/17 have now been paid to Last Chance Hotel and a group called Luna Animal rescue based in Cambridgeshire and helping UK dogs mainly in the South East and East Anglia. They are a registered charity, run by volunteers and using foster homes. www.lunaanimalrescue.org
12.4.17 I shall shortly be making the final donations from money raised in the tax year 16/17, in total they will be equivalent to 74% of the coat prices. Thank you to all my customers, particularly to those who add a donation to their payment. In addition a number of coats have been donated to online charity auctions during the year.
6.4.17 Having held my prices since April '13, sadly I have had to increase them a little to help offset the increased cost of running a website and the ever rising cost of yarn.
27.3.17 Postage for 1st class small parcels has today increased to £3.40 for up to 1KG and £5.50 for up to 2Kg. Second class to £2.90 both sizes.
Wishing all my site visitors a Happy New Year and thanking you for your support during 2016.
Two interim donations have been made to West Yorkshire dog rescue and to Lurcher SOS.
A big thank you to Laura of Posh Pods (www.facebook.com/poshpods where she sells hand made collars and leads) for her very effective facebook posting for me.
At long last I have created a gallery where I can display a lot more photos of happy customers. See tab in menu, click on the photo to the left or access from 'before' page.
Currently finalising 5 donations of monies raised in the tax year 15/16 and am able to pass on sums equivalent to 88% of the coat prices. Click here to see where it went.

As expected, postage has gone up today and a basic 1st class parcel will in future cost £3.35.
New 'Quick Buy' page added for those in a hurry.
The money raised in the 14/15 tax year has now been distributed and equates to 75% of the coat prices.
Thank you to all my customers, those who help with publicity, those who add a little to their payments and the increasingly rare individuals who send me materials despite the awful postal costs.
