Susan Holton creates luxurious handcrafted knitwear which is beautiful, original and wearable, and is crafted with meticulous attention to design detail and quality of finish.
Her degree and original career was in graphic design. Self taught as a knitter and dyer, she began as a hand knitter but when she discovered the amazing creative possibilities in domestic knitting machines she was hooked.
Sue explores stitch, yarn, fibre and colour in many experimental knitted and dyed samples to create the beautiful fabrics, textures, colours and drape she’s looking for. Wherever possible she knits fabric and garment together - with minimal seaming - for a beautiful drape.
Combining contemporary design with creative yarn blends and exceptional hand finishes Susan creates timeless quality knits. Her clothes and accessories are offered in a range of colours, silhouettes, weights and blends. From classic shapes to cool and cosy designs, each piece is soft, breathable and stretchy. Renowned for their tactility, Susan uses luxurious high quality cotton, silk, linen and viscose yarns. Some of the pieces are hand dyed and hand painted which means you are choosing something truly unique.
