We are a textile design studio—and as of 2023, a knitwear factory—based on the Northerly Scottish islands of Orkney. We specialise in original knitted pattern, with an intuitive, exploratory approach to colour.
We are a partnership between Hilary Grant + Robbie Harvey, with a background and training in Textile Design + Architecture. We share a Humanist + intuitive approach to design.
How it's Made
Our Blankets, Bed-throws, Scarves & Pom Hats are all knitted here in Orkney, on our new, state of the art Shima Seiki knitting machine, and finished using hand-intensive traditional methods.
We use a superfine, woollen-spun premium lambswool which is dyed + spun in Scotland. Our yarns are made from the finest grade lambswool fibres available, sourced only from farms with very high animal welfare standards and progressive land management practices. These yarns are guaranteed to be mulesing-free and are certified RWS (Responsible Wool Standard).
The mill which produces our yarns is on the banks of Loch Leven in Kinross. They use environmentally friendly dyes, so the water which they draw from Loch Leven can be completely cleaned and returned to the loch, once dyeing is complete.
This is reflected in the feel and longevity of our knitwear - yarns aren't over processed, and gentle dyes mean that our yarns retain their suppleness and all the incredible properties which make wool warm, luxurious and practical.
