Connecting with other knitters is a unique joy. Spot a knitter in the wild and you'll soon find yourself bonding over yarn stores visited and patterns enjoyed all because one of you recognised the careful hand stitching in the wearer's hat. It's this special connection that we've had in mind as we put together this year's gift boxes.

Each box is beautifully packaged and ready for gifting, with space to add your own special note on the seal. (If you'd like us to fill this out and send it directly to your recipient without including an invoice in the package simply leave a note at checkout.) Our gift boxes contain items from some of our favourite independent producers that we just know knitters will love. Whether it’s hand poured candles from Scottish small business owners Our Lovely Goods, breed specific, small batch wool from Rauwerk or the definitive learn to knit guide from the team Pom Pom, we’ve included a special mix of Scottish, British and worldwide knit community.

The Wool Lover’s Gift Box

Give the passionate knitter or crocheter in your life a gift they're sure to love with this inspiring yarn gift box. For the perfect introduction to small batch wool production, we've combined Clara Parkes' deep-dive into American wool production, Vanishing Fleece, with a skein of beautiful Bavarian merino yarn and added a bar of special wool wash – made from wool to care for wool!

The Wool Lovers box includes:

  • A hardback copy of Vanishing Fleece by Clara Parkes
  • A bouncy skein of small batch Bavarian merino yarn from Rauwerk
  • A bar of Shear Delight wool wash
An open box containing a bar of chocolate, a purple skein of yarn and a candle.

Knitter’s Night In Gift Box

Give the busy knitter in your life the gift of a little indulgent me time. For the Knitter's Night In box we've teamed up with some of our favourite small businesses to put together everything we'd want, as knitters, for a really cosy and luxurious night in. We've included our favourite candles to set the mood, a delicious local chocolate to snack on, and a precious skein of beautiful hand dyed yarn. All you need to do is choose the perfect combination of scent, flavour and colour.

The Knitter's Night In box includes:

  • Full size vegan candle from Our Lovely Goods
  • Bar of delicious locally produced chocolate
  • Skein of Posh Fingering hand-dyed yarn from The Uncommon Thread
An open box containing a pair of bamboo knitting needles, a red ball of wool and book called Knit How with a black woman wearing a red cowl on the cover.

Learn to Knit Gift Box

Give the gift of knitting this winter with our beautifully packaged learn to knit gift box. We've included a copy of Knit How, a fantastic introduction to both the craft and community of knitting, a ball of our favourite sustainable yarn for beginners, and a pair of easy to handle bamboo needles. They'll be casting off their first project in no time!

The Learn to Knit box includes:

  • Knit How book, a complete learn to knit guide
  • Ball of Gilliatt yarn
  • Pair of bamboo needles

We hope that this range of gift boxes will help you make more of those knitterly connections with either the small producers we're included, family who love the craft like you do or a friend you haven't been able to teach to knit in person. You can browse our full gift guide here, we have lots of ideas for gifts that we think knitters would love to unwrap, because we would too!
