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!
Since 2012 Alison has grown the family business by continually developing her own skills alongside those of her team, to offer the highest quality of knitted products. Relocating the business from Glasgow back home to the Scottish Borders in 2017, see’s the company based in the picturesque town of Kelso. It is here their dedicated team of skilled makers have proudly brought knitwear manufacturing back to the town. Their collective experience has created a unique blend of skill and passion, ensuring they continue to develop the business and make each product in house.
In 2019 they were extremely proud to be named finalists in ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards following their 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.
