Susan Holton Knitwear

Finely crafted simple elegant knitwear for women who love to wear something beautiful and unique. Designed and handmade in Surrey.


My knitwear is beautiful, original and wearable and crafted with meticulous attention to design detail and quality of finish: garments fit and fabrics drape beautifully. I love to create simple elegant knitwear which is infinitely wearable and will last for years.

My degree and original career was in graphic design. I am self taught as a knitter and dyer. I began as a hand knitter but when I discovered the amazing creative possibilities in domestic knitting machines I was hooked. I explore stitch, yarn, fibre and colour in experimental knitted and dyed samples to create the fabrics, textures, colours and drape I am looking for. Wherever possible I knit fabric and garment together – with minimal seaming – for a beautiful drape.

Many of my pieces are hand dyed and/or hand painted, so they are distinctive and no two are ever quite alike.

My prices range from £35 for mittens to £190 for some of my garments.

I was born and have lived all of my life in Surrey – with the exception of the three years during which I lived and studied in London (40 years ago – but even then, I have always lived ‘south of the river’!). I’m proud to say that my knitwear is designed and handmade in Surrey and I promote ‘made in Surrey’ as a badge of quality. I have exhibited and sold my knitwear in many locations in the south east of England – the majority of these have been in Surrey – and actually most have been within the Surrey Hills area.
