Handmade Knitwear Made With Love
It’s always winter somewhere in the world! At The Handmade Shop, that’s all the excuse we need to get excited about the beautiful handmade knitwear on offer in this category.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone special, you can be confident that every garment is a one-of-a-kind original, handcrafted by expert knitters that have really mastered their craft.
Knitwear Designed for Warmth and Style
The art of knitting dates all the way back to the 3rd century, with the earliest apparel functioning purely as protective or outdoor clothing. With the rise of fashion, technology, pattern making, and stitch creation, today’s knitter not only possesses a useful skill, but has the creative flair to design and create beautiful sought-after designs using a variety of yarns and textiles.
Wool is extremely good at holding in warmth, and its unique properties provide great insulation even when wet. You’ll find many of our handcrafters have used high quality wool within their designs, working with Merino and Alpaca fleece, along with other pure new wools. Others have taken advantage of brightly coloured acrylics and the technological benefits of polyamide for ease of laundering and durability.

Babies, children and adults of all shapes and sizes are catered for with handmade knitwear available in:

There is a saying among knitting circles - "I knit my love into every stitch” – and the time and passion that goes into the creation of each piece of knitwear is testimony to the designers commitment to perfection and quality.
Handmade knitwear makes a practical, personalised gift for any age or gender offering style, comfort, warmth and individuality.
