Home-made is where the heart is!

Welcome to Shell’s Knitwear – the home of beautiful, British and bespoke!

I’m a real fiend for knit and nature – born and based in Yorkshire with its countryside and its woolly sheep, the love is deep-rooted! It’s a classic British image, and my knitwear is also just that: classic and British. I’m not one for exotic fussy detail or throwaway items – I’m quite the opposite with my colours and patterns. These + lots of time lovingly hand making them = timeless pieces.

I love searching for all things vintage, being in the outdoors, and pressing flowers that I’ve found in the surrounding fields. But knitting is my number 1.

Now that this is all said and read, I’m going to get back to it.

Enjoy browsing!

Welcome to Shell's Knitwear store!

Here you will find handcrafted ladies and mens knitted accessories, made from luxurious yarns at affordable prices!

The range consists of knitted headbands, armwarmers, mittens, snoods, scarves, hats, hair clips, bracelets and mug cosys, all of which I design and make in my small home town in Lancashire. I use a standard gauge, domestic brother knitting machine to knit the items, and I then stitch them up by hand. This timely process means that a lot of love and care has gone into making each piece, and due to the nature of my small business, I stock only small amounts of each type of yarn, making your item even more special and personal to you.

I knit using only the finest of yarns, which include mohair wool and lambswool, ( non- itchy yarns! ) in order to ensure a high quality product that my customers will love!

Knitting is a strong passion of mine, and I always strive to provide the best service for all of my customers. So please keep re-visiting Shell's Knitwear store, where you will always receive first class service and beautiful design.

Thank you,
