Norfolk Knits creates bespoke children’s handknits and adult accessories using beautiful natural fibres and finishings. All items are individually designed and handmade to customers’ specifications by textile artist, Lorna Gostling.
Many of the items are personally made by Lorna, although Norfolk Knits has a small team of skilled hand-knitters who provide excellent support.
The designs and colours are often inspired by the unique natural beauty of Norfolk.
Please enjoy browsing our gallery to view examples of previous knitwear commissions by Norfolk Knits.
All designs for children’s knitwear are available in sizes 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years, 2-3 years and 3-4 years. Larger sizes may be available on request. Please view gallery for examples.
We have an extensive range of products and designs, including jumpers, cardigans, bootees, hats, scarves & mittens, ponchos, dresses, bags, toys and knitting kits for babies and children. In addition to this, we can make gorgeous accessories for grown-ups! Our range includes ponchos, hats, scarves & wraps, wrist warmers, tea cosies and cushions, and each item not only looks beautiful but feels luxurious to the touch because of the high quality materials used in its creation.
Each piece is made from natural fibres — including wool, alpaca, cotton, cashmere, silk, angora, bamboo, soya and hand-dyed yarns — and is individually finished with buttons or beadwork — again, using natural materials such as shell, glass, wood, coconut and ceramics.
Norfolk Knits is represented at various fairs and shows throughout England, so please check our current schedule for an event near to you.
