SINCE SUMMER 2011

Welcome to Lalylaland

Hi! How lovely that your way leads you to our little Amiguriverse! - Let me introduce myself quickly: My name is Lydia - I am a crochet-enthusiastic and your local guide through Lalylaland. I know every stitch here like the back of my hand, literally! Because my hands created all the crocheted cuteness you'll meet around here. Of course I'm not alone in this little crochet world: there's also the most wonderful family-like team you can imagine, and a bunch of really extraordinary amigurumi characters populating Lalylaland.

Life is a lovely ball of Yarn.

It has a beginning and an end, it runs along relaxed, mostly it is pleasantly cuddly, durable, colorful and you can never have enough of it. Sometimes life fluffs or it is tangled, then you untie the mess and crochet on. And sometimes you knot loose ends and the n you go on in a completely different color. And in the end, it's your love and time that makes it so precious.

The Basis of a great Idea is

The Basis of a great Idea is

… a large paper bin. Ideas are a dime a dozen. But it's the unique and surprising ones that make us tingle in our fingertips.

Some of our crochet toys are interactive, others educational, they can glow in the dark, move, or play a tune that you won't find anywhere else – and all of them are meant to surprise you and to make you smile.

More is Less

More is Less

There are only 3-4 lalylala designs a year. Instead of rushing, we focus on finding the perfect minimalistic design and write down mindful instructions to give you the best crochet experience.

Only if every stitch fits, the instructions pay attention to the smallest detail, and the pattern guides you safely around possible pitfalls, it is ready for release.

DI(F)Y – Do it for Yourself

Procraftination* is key! Stepping back from daily urgencies and taking time to create something lovely with your own hands makes a handmade toy so precious.

The love and care you put into your project remains tangible in every stitch. That's why we do not sell already made amigurumi toys but encourage you start crocheting and to do it (for) yourself.

* Work on a craft project when you should be doing laundry, making dinner, or cleaning the house.

New Yarn City Tales

Talking to Mortimer was not very productive. He seemed rather uninterested and the only idea he came up with was that the wool might have been eaten by moths. How stupid!
Hailey joined her grandmother's friends – seven women of different ages met here for their weekly tea party, all of them with a love for yarn and most of them even owners of craft shops or yarn manufactories.
Mortimer had to laugh out loud! The books on the desk not only showed that the company's finances were really bad, but also the reason and the success of his father's secret moth breeding were documented...
All of a sudden the magic was gone. The tragic accident of his parents throw Mortimer back to reality. He had to reluctantly accept his legacy.
Hailey opened the door of a yarn closet. There was a boy, sleeping the middle of wool balls. He seemed to be lost – what a luck Hailey had found him!
We don’t know for sure whether Mortimer's secret pet was responsible for his perforated clothes, or if it's just natural for boys this age to wear jeans and socks full of holes.
Mortimer Nocturne comes from a long dynasty of venerable vermin exterminators. His family tree goes far back to the famous Rat-Catcher of Hamelin.
