VALUES

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We work to create beautiful and timeless knitted pieces from natural fibres, in a process which gives value to craftsmanship. We design pieces which are beyond the throwaway aesthetic.   

MADE IN BRITAIN

Oubas Knitwear values made in Britain; drawing on the rich history and heritage that surrounds us on the British Isles to bring contemporary products with high end craftsmanship and attention to detail. In a world of global trade and supply chains, we find calm and sanctuary in the valuable practise of thoughtful design, making and then connecting directly with you, our customers.
The pieces made in Scottish mills draw on years of expertise of working with the fibres we use, and we work closely with their designers and technicians to realise together the products, made in Britain.

 

MATERIALS

We use carefully sourced high grade yarns and take time to develop each piece, sampling, refining and hand finishing. Using yarns from British and Irish mills, with a strong sense of provenance and transparency of manufacture on our products. The wool we use is Merino Lambswool, chosen for it's fine micron count, giving the most luxurious hand feel. The majority of our colours are melange, meaning there are between 5 and 6 different shades of fleece in each yarn, which are dyed first before the yarn is spun. This creates a beautiful depth of tone within the knit.
