Ken Barlow Christmas Jumper Coronation Street

Coronation Street + our Christmas jumpers = Babs' dreams come true

Ken Barlow has already been spotted in trailers for an episode of Coronation Street where he'll be wearing a Woolly Babs Christmas Jumper. Specifically, Rudolph with the squeaky nose

He was even on Tuesday's This Morning looking awesome in our handmade Christmas jumper.

SPOILER ALERT: he may also be seen with a little friend in a matching jumper. What a beautifully tailored duo.

We think Ken Barlow (played by William Roache) is looking pretty fine in his Christmas jumper, styling it up with a scarf. Even with gloves on, he's managing a thorough squeaking of Rudolph's nose.

We've long been fans of Coronation Street and Babs herself is from Lancashire so keeps tabs on life over there from this, the bright side of the Pennines.

Therefore we count ourselves as locals and are proud to have our products chosen to be on one of our favourite and local shows!

To get the Ken Barlow look for yourself or someone special, this is the Christmas Jumper he's sporting.

Also available for ladies (Kennettes?) and... just saying... dogs! From Chihuahua to Rottweiler.

Christmas jumpers BBC Radio Leeds

Today we had the pleasure of airing the sonic sophistication of our Christmas jumpers on BBC Radio Leeds. They were doing a 'One Month Till Christmas' show covering local businesses that rely on Christmas.

We had to be up by 5am to get into town and into the studio to go on air just after 7am, but it was totally worth it.

The lovely Liz Green was a marvel to watch as we waited for our interview. She really knows how to run that breakfast show.

Then it was us giving it all that with our squeakers and bells and explaining how important Christmas is to our business. As in... it IS our business.


Well Babs and Frank are excited for Christmas...they've been speaking to Liz this morning.

Then we did a video piece - turns out radio is pretty visual now! It was a lot of fun and totally worth the early morning. Plus when do you get to see Leeds looking like this!
