What is Custom Design?

Custom design hats are part of our bespoke one-to-one service. The custom-make process enables you to bring your idea to us, then we discuss the options together and our team design a digital version to show you how it will look. When we are all happy it will work, we’ll book your order into our workshop and start knitting.

Our Clients

Here's what some of our bespoke customers have to say...

Lost Map Records

We truly LOVE Wonky Woolies. Our custom designed Lost Map bobble hat is one of our biggest selling items of merchandise – the fans love them so much, they buy them in multiple colours! Alison brought the design to life, and has always been super-communicative with each order we’ve made. 

Johnny Lynch


Junkbox Apparel

“Wonky Woolies are INCREDIBLE! Alison, Graham & the team are seriously just the best.  From supporting with design work (and my terrible sketches) to sending over colour samples, they have made the whole process so easy. We’re now on our 2nd Wonky X Junkbox design and I honestly can’t wait for the next one!”

Carrie Henderson


Fundraising for SiMBA

“You couldn’t miss us on the West Highland Way, ‘there’s the lads in the pink hats’, it was a real conversation starter. The hats are amazing quality and kept us warm in the tents on the colder nights. An amazing keepsake from our walk, we’ll be back next year for the 2022 version!”
