About Val

I have owned retired Greyhounds for over 8 years and run a forum and website to further the rehoming of retired racers. Another of my passions is knitting and my signature knitwear style is garments made using 2 strands of yarn resulting in a faux intarsia effect. So what better business to start up than a Greyhound knitwear business combining 2 of my passions?

I also sell the knitting patterns and offer advice and support so that owners and fundraisers can create garments themselves, either for their own hounds or for raising money at meet and greets and dog shows.

There are Greyhounds4me coats, hats and Rainbow Hounds in countries all around the world and it is heart warming to know that so many of these beautiful dogs are being rehomed after their racing careers finish.
