About Us


 Erica Louise ELM is a home made business offering high quality Handknitted items for you, your home and your loved ones.

ELM handknits are created in Launceston Tasmania by Louise. I use local and Australian wool where ever possible. My passion is to knit and in doing so supporting other small businesses too. 

My second love is the environment and I hold a degree in Environmental Science.  20+ years ago I was the one refusing plastic bags and getting odd looks. Hence my line has minimal packaging, and I am known to re-use packaging that’s in good condition on orders too as the environment and our sustainability is paramount to me

I live at home with my three young children and our cat Smokey.

I have added some sustainability items to my shop. 

Everything is knitted by me with love and care for each individual item. I love what I do and I want you to love it also. 

I began knitting as a child, with my nan teaching me at the age of 6. I developed an instant love of knitting. I remember those first stitches well, very tight and pulling off the needle, ha ha. I kept at it and have now been complimented many times by the quality of my knitting and its even tension! :) so persistence definitely paid off. 

That’s a little about ELM handknits for now, and I Thankyou for stopping by, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to ask through the ‘Contact Us’ page.
