***Hello! I am currently on maternity leave for a few weeks, so will not be processing any orders until the end of June now. Thanks for your patience***
This is the online boutique of Sarah Elwick Knitwear. I design & produce a range of contemporary knitwear accessories, known for their eye-catching and modern combinations of colour and pattern.
I use cutting-edge digital knitting technology to produce intricately patterned luxury fabrics, with the highest quality finish, made from either 100% Scottish Lambswool or finest Italian merino, a yarn known for it's beautiful smooth handle, and high performance qualities.
I have sourced a specialist knitwear manufacturer in Shetland to help me produce my range, as the Scottish knitwear industry is globally renowned for its outstanding quality and unique heritage. I was always determined to support this industry, and to contribute to the current ‘Made in Britain’ revolution!
I've been machine knitting for thirteen years now, a love affair kick-started when I was introduced to it on my textile design degree at Winchester School of Art in 2000, & have never looked back. I went straight on to study for an MA in Menswear Knitwear at the Royal College of Art. Since graduating I've worked for a variety of designers from high end to high street, getting a good grounding in the knitwear industry.
I currently combine producing my own collection with teaching on the Fashion Knitwear pathway at Winchester School of Art. So my work life is 100% knit focused which is great!
