Something like this but from a uk seller? All I get is knitting patterns and anyone who knows me knows this is not an option. I can't knit to a standard, nor do I know anyone who can.

I got ours from Pottery Barn Kids they ship to the UK and the quality was/is excellent.

We bought some from Tescos a few years ago, tbh they look lovely but are a nightmare when it comes to filling them up as things get hitched in the wool.

I have the supersize version of this for DS...doesn't look like they're doing them that size this year though. It's very pretty, but Marne is spot on, EVERYTHING snags on the inside and they get a bit spiky really.

The great thing about the ones I linked to in the OP is that they're lined. However they will. cost approx £37 shipped before import tax is added and, frankly, I don't love my children enough to spend around £100 on stockings before I've filled the bloody things.

I like the PB ones but I don't get a sense of helping out the small business owner from them. The chunkychilli ones are nice too but don't seem to be lined.

I may have to learn knitting for next year, or pay someone to make them to order maybe..
