Customer Comments

We are always amazed and appreciative of the feedback we receive from our valued customers. Here’s what some of them have said about us via emails, phone calls, and written notes…

Many thanks for facilitating this order so quickly. I can’t wait to gift these beautiful Christmas stockings for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. My husband and I have a knitted set for our own use and have also given the knitted stocking designs to our son’s family. They are family treasures and future heirlooms. Wonderfully done! And, as I follow your newsletter and Facebook postings, your company seems like a joyful endeavor. I like that you all have infused that joy into the creative work of your hands. Many thanks for the speedy order, the beautiful stockings, and the joy!

Love the wooden stocking hangers! They worked wonderfully this Christmas and held all the weight perfectly! We had a big snow down here starting Christmas night and we USED the hangers to hang all the wet coats boots and gloves on the mantel near the wood stove! The hangers can be used all winter! LOVE them!!! Thank you

Denise G., Suffolk, VA

The stockings I ordered were gorgeous! They were delivered right on time and far exceeded my expectations! Thank you for your lovely work. My son in law and my grandson loved em!

Lynn G., San Diego, CA

Annie, our stockings are wonderful! Thank you for making Christmas magic for us!

Joan M., Toledo, OH

Just wanted to say that we LOVE our stockings. Thank you so much!

Tara K., Danbury, CT

These stockings are nothing short of perfect! They couldn’t be any more gorgeous. I’m so glad I happened to find your website. These will be loved for many, many years by us. We were married in August, and I’m thrilled to have these stockings hanging on our mantle for our first Christmas together!!

Lindsey R., Seattle, WA

Hi there I just had to write and say how beautiful these personalized Christmas stockings are! They are way beyond what I expected they really are heavy 100 percent wool, generous size stockings! So to any of you who are on the fence, buy them before they are gone…you will be so happy you did.The colors are a rich berry and perfect forest green. I scoured the internet because I wanted to give my family something homemade and beautiful that could be passed down through the years and this more than fit the bill. They look so perfect hanging on the fireplace at our ski house…straight out of a magazine. Pottery barn had better look out…they have nothing on these stockings! Thanks.

Wanted to say how pleased we are with our new Christmas stockings! We received them in the mail today and the kids are so eager to hang them “by the chimney with care.” They are just beautiful and perfectly sized! Thanks so much for your speed in processing our order so that we can enjoy them the whole holiday season! Merry Christmas from your newest favorite customers!

The Dent Family, Ransom Canyon, TX

Annie, I will look for the baby angel patterns and order the pet patterns then also! I just finished my second holly stocking and am finishing my third moose stocking. I sometimes change the color patterns so each stocking is unique. Thanks for a great pattern. I hope your holiday season is a success. Have a blessed Christmas.

Ruth W., Clarksville, TN

I must tell you that I think your stocking designs are the best I have ever seen. I searched the web for good designs and yours are the best! I have made 9 of them for my children and grandchildren. Thank you for sharing your designs and using Maine spun yarn.

Cindy K., South Paris, ME

Just received my stocking kit and was thrilled. The yarn is perfect and so are the directions.

Suzanne R., Fredericksburg, VA

I got the stocking in the mail today and it is PERFECT!!! Thank you so much.

Sydney H., Nashville, TN

Anne, we had our 3rd child this June and we just ordered our 8th stocking from you (this number includes grandparents and dogs!). We are always so happy to put up your stockings in our home during Christmas – they are so beautiful and they have become a very special tradition for our family. Thank you so much for the time and care you put into these stockings.

Becky R., Clark, NJ

I just wanted to thank you for your great patterns! I just ordered from you for the 3rd year in a row, and I will be making my 4th, 5th, and 6th stockings. Your patterns are so easy to read. I love that I can order more yarn and make the same pattern again. Thanks again and I will probably be ordering again next year!

Jenny S., Kansas City, MO

I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful stocking kits. When I found out that I was pregnant with our first child in January of this year, I began working on her stocking and then continued to make one for each member of our family (including our cat!). What a wonderful way to keep busy during those months and feel like I was making something that we could keep in the family for many years to come. As a beginner knitter, the stockings didn’t come out perfect, but that’s okay, too, I think. 🙂 I’ve attached a photo of the finished product.

Thanks again for such a wonderful kit and pattern. (I’m going to try out the mittens next!)

I just wanted to write and say that I am so happy that I got our family stockings this year. They were my Christmas present. I searched the internet for what I knew in my head I wanted and found your site. I was excited to buy from a family owned place. I love the way they look and they saw their first Christmas of many to come! Thank you so much! Attached is a photo of one of my daughters unpacking her stocking and the photo below is them all hung on our wall (we don’t have a fireplace!).

– Rebecca H., Lansing, MI

Dear Anne,
We received our sock hooks today – what speedy shipping! Many thanks for your wonderful customer service!

Merry Christmas!

– M. Daley, Center Valley, PA

The package arrived today and the stockings look beautiful. Now I’m just waiting for the girlfriend to get home to surprise her with them.

Thanks for your help. Have a Merry Christmas,

– Jason N., Woodbridge, VA

To whom this may concern,
I just received our three stockings that were personalized with our names… they are beautiful! They are so much more than I expected! Beautiful work and very efficient service. I will tell my friends and family about you!

Merry Christmas!

– Josselyn O., Soldotna, AK

Hi Annie!
I talked with you on the phone before thanksgiving asking about how to fit a long name on a stocking. I really enjoyed talking to you (at least I think it was you). I have made 5 of your stockings this year. These are the last two. I decided to use an angel motif that I had from another pattern. I am quite happy with how they turned out.

I really enjoyed your pattern. I had a lot of family health “stuff” going on this year with my elderly parents etc. Listening to a book on tape (I have been enjoying Jennifer Chiaverini’s “Elm Creek Quilter” series – particularly “The Christmas Quilt”) while I knit these stockings has been my oasis of peace and tranquility through this season.

On thanksgiving, I gave the first two stockings to my young cousin’s children. They are Alex (age 5) and Lauren (age 8). I packaged each stocking with a children’s book that had a Christmas stocking theme. I didn’t really expect much of a reaction from the children – I know that it is visions of TOYS, not books and empty hand knit Christmas stockings that dance in their heads. Well, when Alex took his stocking out of the bag, he gasped and ran with it to his mother, shouting, “IT’S GOT MY NAME ON IT!” I never expected such a reaction over something I knit from a little boy! I think I glowed for the rest of the day!

I live in Waterbury, Connecticut and today we are having a wintery cold day. Up until last week it was unseasonably warm here, but now we are into scarf and mitten weather. I’m guessing Wisconsin has been cold for a while?

Well, I just wanted to share this with you and thank you for creating such a beautiful and enjoyable pattern. I love the story of Annies Woolens and I have directed several people who want to purchase finished stockings to your site. I hope you have a successful year and may God keep your family safe and healthy and warm.

– Susan R., Waterbury, DE

Hello Annie’s Woolens,
I received my order today, and wanted to tell you how beautiful the Christmas stockings are; they are exactly what I was hoping for!

Plus, the turn around time was awesome. Thank you so much; these stockings will start a new tradition for my daughter, son-in-law and especially my 17 month old granddaughter, Clara. Happy Holidays to you.

– Clare C., Quincy, CA

Hello, I just wanted to tell you that the 6 stockings that I ordered arrived yesterday. I had been looking for an ‘old fashioned’ type of wool stocking because I don’t like all the felt type stockings that you see on the market these days, and particularly the ones with all the little extras sewn on. They look cheap to me and I just don’t like them.

Your stockings are beautiful and the quality is excellent. Just what I wanted!! I love them and hung them immediately.

– Brenda S., Gladstone, MI

I just want you to know how thrilled I was to receive my order within just a few days of ordering. The stockings are beautiful….. the other grandchildren who already have their stockings are going to be so jealous of these new grandchildren’s new socks. It is a pleasure to do business with professional business people. The service as well as the product was quick and outstanding.

Thank you, A very satisfied customer.

– Sherrilyn P., Sequim, WA

Hello, I have just ordered my third personalized stocking from you — two last Christmas for my original daughters-in-law, one this year for the newest one! Obviously I was very pleased with the ones I received from you last year. Thank you for doing such a lovely job and being part of our family’s holiday tradition.

– Maggie T., San Clemente, CA

Thank you so much for the stocking. This is the third stocking we’ve ordered from you for our children and we love them!!!

– Mary Catherine P., Salt Lake City, UT

I just wanted to let you know that the stockings arrived and they are perfect. I think they may be my absolute favorite thing I’ve ever bought in my life! My son Thomas was born 12 weeks early last winter, and we spent last Christmas in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I am really looking forward to starting over with his “first” Christmas this year, and I’m sure your stockings will become part of our Christmas tradition. Just wanted to say thanks!

Merry Christmas (a little early)!

– Wendy D., Cary, NC

Dear Anne,

I just wanted to share with you how grateful I am that I have found you and your company. When I got a knock at my door this afternoon I far from expected that I would already be recieving my purchase. On top of such a speedy delivery I pulled them out to be more then satisfied with my stockings. My favorite memory of christmas as a little girl was the hand made stockings that my mother had for us. I truly believe that these too will be a cherished memory for my family. Thank you over and over, I truly love our stockings.

– Kieran C., Orting, WA


We received our stockings yesterday, and they far exceeded my expectations. They are wonderful! Thank you for wonderful stockings and quick shipping.

Kind regards,

Got them today. Wow! — more impressive than the pictures. Thank you so much. I’m going to have a hard time keeping these a secret until Christmas. I want to share them with everyone I know!

Hello again,
We received our stockings today and I wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we are! They are so beautifully done. Thanks again,

– Lori L., St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA

Thank you very much. She loves the stocking. I have one my grandmother knit for me before I was born and Rachel has never had a personalized one and she absolutely loves it. It also looks much classier hanging from the mantle than a store bought one. Thanks again for you amazing speed and quality work.

– Dennis L., Hillsboro, OR

Just a quick note of THANKS. The order just arrived and we are SUPER PLEASED. Thanks for a great job.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

– Buzz G., St Augustine, FL

Thank you for the beautiful stockings! I am very pleased…I’ve been looking for something because I made one for my son but never had time to make one for my daughter. thanks again from a mom too busy to knit!

– Petrea K., Bismarck, ND

Just wanted to let you know the stockings arrived on time and were the hit of the season! Everyone loved the idea of stuffing each other’s stockings instead of “bringing boxes”? we have a new family tradition and the personalized woolen stockings will be with us for years! Thank you, again.

– Mary Ann M., Houston, TX

I received my christmas stockings and was soo pleased. The kids loved their names on them. They looked awesome hanging up and were larger then I expected. Thank you so much for your time as they added a special something to our Christmas this year. 

– Lindsey Gates C., Diamond Point, NY

Growing up my Great Aunt Jo always knitted each new family member a stocking. Aunt Jo is too old to do that now. I am getting married this winter and I wanted my husband to feel just as much a part of the family during Christmas time, as he does not have family members who celebrate the holiday. I searched everywhere for customizable stockings and finally found Annie’s Woolens. I received my order and I love it! I cannot wait for my fiance to see the stocking hanging on the mantle Christmas morning! Thank you!

– Katelyn A., Springfield, OR 

Just had to write and tell you how pleased I am with my order. The patterns are clearly written and the picture is just great. I love the yarn too. I can’t wait to get the hat and mittens on needles. I am sure I will be a faithful customer. It has been a long time since I have been so pleased with an order, Thanks for getting the order to me so quickly. Thanks again for a wonderful product.

– Pat W., North Canton, OH 

I want to thank you for the extremely prompt service and the beautiful personalized Christmas stocking. It exceeded my expectations. I am so excited to give it to our grandson, Andersen! It’s perfect!! Thank you again!

– Pamela W., Poplar Grove, IL 

Wow! Just received the stocking and it is wonderful!! Thank you for such a fine job.

– Tammy S., Touchet, WA 

Dear Anne,

My name is Monica and I’m the customer who you spoke with last Sunday regarding the shipping of my package (I’m the one with a brother who has a cabin on Hunter Lake up near you).

Anyway… I wanted to let you know my package arrived today and I was just thrilled. The patterns appear to be nicely written, the charts are very colorful and easy to read and the picture on the front, a real photograph, is a great touch. I’m impressed with your whole kit and the attention to detail and quality.

I’ve just finished a gauge swatch for my first stocking and am eager to cast on and get started. Thank you very much for your wonderful product and business…very nice work!

– Monica A., Los Angeles, CA
