We design, knit and hand finish premium hats in our Scottish Borders workshop.
Our speciality is creating custom design bobble hats, from one off designs to small batch manufacturing.
Quality knitwear, made in Scotland.
Why are you called Wonky Woolies?
When Alison started hand knitting, under the watchful eye of mum Carol, she knit an unusual creation, filled with holes, which was lovingly named her Wonky Woolie! The name stuck but thankfully the knitting got much better!
Starting from her flat in 2012, Alison has grown the business by developing her skills alongside her team, to offer the highest quality of product while increasing production. Relocating from Glasgow back home to the Scottish Borders in 2017, we are now based in the picturesque town of Kelso. Here our small team of skilled makers are proud to bring knitwear manufacturing back to the town. Their collective experience has brought a unique blend of skill, ensuring every product is made in house to the highest standard.
In 2019 we were proud to be finalists in ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards following our Highly Commended certificate in the ‘Micro Business of the Year’ category in 2018.
Custom design hats are our speciality
Our team offer a design and sample service enabling customers to order an individual bespoke hat. Thereafter, we offer small batch manufacturing with wholesale pricing. Quality is the most important aspect of production, with each hat being handled carefully by our highly skilled team. The process involves knitting, linking, machine sewing, hand sewing, pompom making, a final quality check and carefully packing to ensure each hat arrives in perfect condition.
As small batch manufacturers of bespoke bobble hats, our portfolio of custom design is varied. Our team work closely with each customer to ensure their product is perfectly suited to their individual needs. From Hope Technology to Black Sheep Brewery, when you see the Wonky Woolies logo, you’ll know it was made here in Kelso, Scotland.
