We are thrilled to announce that Knockando has secured a prestigious retail listing with leading homeware and lifestyle boutique Pad Lifestyle, available exclusively at Harvey Nichols Edinburgh and Knightsbridge.
Pad, founded by interior designer and entrepreneur Anna Atwal, specialises in carefully curated design-led home, fashion and lifestyle brands with a showcase of international brands and independent designers across lifestyle stores and Harvey Nichols' concessions.
Two of our beautiful limited edition throws - The Dalrachie and Dobcross are being sold exclusively through Pad and Harvey Nichols. The Dalrachie is a wholly sustainable collection, which has been created with wool from some very special North Country Hill Cheviot's from Dalrachie farm in Ballindalloch, a short drive from the Mill. The Dobcross blankets are significant in that the yarn used was carded, spun and woven on our remarkable Victorian machinery including our 120 year old Dobcross loom.
Our Whisper of Cashmere collection of throws and scarves is also available in-store and online.
Anna Atwal, founder of Pad Lifestyle, said:
“The history of Knockando Woolmill and the fact that its Victorian looms are still in use today is really fascinating. At Pad we are really interested in the journey of design and the story behind our brands and I think there’s a real engagement now with the public who have an appetite for products that can tell that story - whether it’s about sustainability, culture, a specific material that’s used, where it’s from, the craftsmanship. Of course, the quality of Knockando’s products speak for themselves so we are looking forward to seeing our customers experience this at our Harvey Nichols stores.”
Commenting on the new listing, John Mulligan, operations director for Knockando Woolmill, said:
“This is an exciting development in our retail strategy as we have historically sold Knockando Woolmill products through the Mill gift shop and online. We are extremely proud to join the stable of quality brands represented by Pad Lifestyle bringing our products to a wider audience via the Harvey Nichols’ concessions in Edinburgh and Knightsbridge.”
