Soft light and cozy neutrals on a rainy afternoon ⛅
#mondaymood: waiting in an endless bathroom line and stealing colour inspo from the grey skies and pastel shapes outside 👌
Does anyone else have a major thing for packaging? 😅 I've been meaning to make matching sets for a while now, and seeing these cuties all dressed up in their new labels has me super inspired! 💪 If you've been dreaming of the perfect slouchy beanie and fingerless gloves in this icy weather, check out the link in bio or head into the @incube8r gallery, Fitzroy. Xx.
Restock time! 💃 We're back in chilly Melbourne after a great little trip. Classic slouchy beanies and matching gloves are now available online and at the @incube8r gallery 👐
Obsessed with this organic cotton. Vegan beanies have been a long time coming, but I promise these are worth the wait 👌 Perfect neutrals with the perfect slouch are hitting the @incube8r and online store next week!
Happy Saturday 👐 What are your weekend plans? Right now I'm packing for a week of house-painting, visiting friends, and attending the New England #fleecetofashion awards! Excited to be back in pretty Armidale, where Fozzel & Bean first started. How's the weather up there, Armidale? Will we see some snow? 🌨️ *repost from @embark.ink
Packaging up cozy orders for cold hands this morning 👐 and planning the next yarn order. What colour are your dream gloves? Tag a friend who would love a pair! 💛

Rainy afternoons always seem to be the most productive time for me 🌧️. Is anyone else the same? What are you working on this week? Xx.
Planning an exciting little eco collab this week with @tabbie.stone ceramics 💛 Loving this sunny NSW weather after weeks of Melbourne clouds and rain! ⛅
It's a beautiful sunny day at the #manningwinterfestival with @tabbie.stone ☀️
Rain adventuring ☔

Knitting up my last few skeins of beautiful plant-dyed organic cotton on this rainy Monday. 🌧️ Chocolate brown is currently sold out, but more is on the way I promise! Both the soft mint green and mustard yellow vegan gloves are currently available in the Smith St @incube8r . Only one pair of each right now, so head in soon if you've got your heart set 💛
If you haven't already peeked at my story, it's official: #fozzelandbean is now available in Fitzroy! 🙆♀️ The @incube8r is a quirky little gallery space on Smith Street, filled with awesome handmade items from local brands.

Decluttering on a Sunday 👐
Happy Saturday you guys! The sun is finally out 🌞 How are you spending your weekend? Xx.
Addicted to little stacks of gloves 🙌 . Head over to the link in bio to see more of these cuties. Handmade as always using 100% Aussie merino wool. . #shoplocal #melbournebrands #sustainablebrands
Definite beanie weather today 🌬️ . I know we're almost 2 weeks in but can you believe it's already May? I sure can't!
Sussing out cute potential laneways for the next photoshoot 🙆♀️ If you're in the Northern suburbs and interested in a little bit of sustainable knitwear modelling, feel free to send me a DM! Xx.
Early morning walks to uni have got me thinking about pale grey gloves that go with everything 🌬️
👐 Sending little packages out into the world honestly never gets old.
Today marks the start of #fashionrevolutionweek 2018! If you're not already on the ethical fashion train, this week is a great opportunity to contemplate the way you approach clothing, and get to know the brands you support on a deeper level. For makers, it's a chance to go even further. Who spins our yarn? Who dyes our fabric? We live in an age where we consumers can finally ask these questions, so let's make the most of it! Xx
These pom pom cuties are stacking up, with two new colourways in the works! Which neutral is your favourite?
It's definitely glove weather in Melbourne today! 🌧️ All this cold wind and rain has me dreaming of chunky scarves and knitted socks... What's do you look forward to most on cold grey days? Xx.
Sunny Sunday morning attaching poms ☀️ Xx.
It's the weekend! 👐 Let's be real, I'm posting this from my Saturday desk job. However, I'm working on a new strategy this week: waking up half an hour earlier to make time for some knitting before rushing out the door. I've never gotten the hang of meditation, but knitting has to be the next best thing! My hands are keeping productive, and I can start the day with a clearer head. What do you think? I'd love to hear your perfect start to a busy day. Xx
👐 Chunky new beanies have hit the shop! Available in 2 neutral colourways (check my insta story to see both), this classic style uses a luxuriously squishy merino wool, farmed and spun in Australia. www.fozzelandbean.etsy.com
Words to live by 👌. This year has been crazy busy (can you believe it's April?!). I'm realising just how important it is to make time to relax, enjoy the moment, and remember what I'm working towards. Today that means coffee in my favourite mug, a great podcast, knitting needles and holiday planning. What makes your soul happy? Let me know in the comments! Xx. *quote rp from @alohassandals
It's almost beanie season!! 👐 Are you the slouchy beanie type or a pom-pom fan? #beanieweather #beanielife
Stocking up on the basics this week 👌 It's almost time to start pulling out the coats here in Melbourne, are you excited?? These guys are made from a sturdy 100% Australian merino wool, making them perfect for surviving every day wear. Women's sizes are ready to ship over on the store. Men's sizes coming soon!
Happy Easter weekend 💛
🍃 Does anyone else feel more productive on windy days? Spending the morning prepping orders and stacking piles of fresh yarn, and then we're off to the Comedy Festival tonight!
Beanie swatching on a Sunday 💛
Two more days until Autumn and the gloves are stacking up 🍃🍂 Are you looking forward to beanie weather this year?
The best thing about starting small is being able to spend time on the little things. As excited as I am to expand and grow this year, nothing beats putting the finishing touches on a tiny package, knowing that somewhere across the world it will make someone smile. What do you love most about selling or shopping handmade? Let me know in the comments 💕
My #mondaymotivation: little plant-dyed stacks on a clean desk 👌
Sunday vibes ☀️
Current mood: never not making gloves 💪 #organiccotton #handsandhustle #happyhumpday
I'm taking the plunge this week and offering free shipping 🌏 worldwide 🌏 over on the shop, for the whole of February! Just in case you were thinking about sending a little something to someone special for Valentines Day (or just because). ❤️
Getting through this manic monday with a giant coffee ☕. The new organic cotton glove range is now available over in the shop, and they could be not be more soft and luxurious to wear. This plant-dyed mustard yellow is my new favourite thing 😍 #mondaymood #makermoments #handsandhustle
Vegan gloves are finally back in stock, in these three gorgeous plant dyed shades 😍. Which one is your favourite? One of my goals for this year is to focus on sourcing a wider range of ethical and sustainable fibres. This organic cotton yarn is handspun in Peru, and is helping to revive the ancestral techniques of hand spinning and hand dyeing of the Paracas Culture. The yarn supports the welfare of the spinners and dyers (and their families) in Lima, providing Fair Trade conditions and a litre of milk per day that they work. 🌱
Can you believe it's February already? We brought our baby monstera home to the office in December and he has already tripled in size, but he still needs a name! Do you name your houseplants, or am I officially crossing into Melbourne hipster territory here? 😂 Let me know in the comments! #monsteralove #hipsterplants #makerspace
Happy Saturday! Today is a photoshoot day, with some squishy new scarves making their way to the Etsy store very soon. But first, coffee ☕ How are you spending the long weekend? --- Beautiful lettering from @hello.flourish #weekendvibes #longweekends #smallbusinesslove
Sometimes simple is best 👌 I'm living for these jumbo birch wood circular needles from @knit_picks. #chunkyknitting #handsandhustle
So we made it to Melbourne 💪 The beginning of 2018 has been well-spent exploring laneways, eating bagels and knitting like mad. I can't wait to share what I have been working on with you all! How is your new year shaping up so far?
These chunky merino wool samples have got me excited 👐 #newproject #intheworks #knittinglife
Beanies & beards 🙌 Only two left in this colourful slouchy style and I'm tempted to keep one! ❤
