My collections include luxury knitted lambswool hats, headbands and scarves for you, as well as hot water bottle covers for your home. I’m inspired by my love of geometric patterns and vibrant colours. You’ll see these in every product, from the tiniest pompoms on my hot water bottle covers to the bold all-over jacquard knitted patterns on my scarves. 

Each item is designed and handmade in the north-east of Scotland, UK, in my small but perfectly formed home studio. By combining my skills in machine knitting and sewing, my pieces mix modern design and traditional technique, which complement each other perfectly. 

My studio is situated at home, in the upstairs of our recently built double garage, which I moved into three years ago. Until then, I’d always worked from the spare bedroom of wherever I lived at the time. It’s so good to have a purpose-built space where everything is laid out how I want it and need it to be. I love it. It’s definitely my happy place.
