Although she perhaps never expected to make more than those first few, their creation met with such a positive reception that excited family discussion quickly led to a well-formulated vision for K-nit...one that is now being realised. Besides providing high-quality garments, continuing to source local wool and endeavouring to support British manufacturing has become central to our ethos, as has a non-wasteful approach to the production process.
K-nit was conceived in mid-2012 when designer and needleworker Carole Layfield set about knitting some hats for her sons and their friends. Using the surplus Lambswool from her store cupboard, she instinctively designed a small collection of comfy, durable beanies whose stark and often improvised colour blends gave way to an authentic style.
