'Bosie' is a word, common in Northern Scotland, meaning 'hug' or 'cuddle' in our old Scots language, Doric. It has long been our favourite Doric word due to its phonetic quaintness but we believe it describes our knitwear perfectly.
Providing knitwear so comfortable it's like a second skin, Bosie Knitwear prides itself on designing, and ethically producing luxury, Scottish natural woollens. Our fortunate knitting locations also access some of the very softest water in Scotland, providing a much lauded softness during the process of wet-finishing, which is crucially formative during the first milling of the virgin yarn and hard to replicate.
We prioritise style, warmth and comfort, but above all, very high quality pure new wool and our overall ethos is 'classic and long-lasting'. We are very aware to reflect trends in silhouette, colour and patterning, but above all we provide beautifully made, staple pieces that stand the test of time.
Bosie favour sensitive techniques to get the most out of this wondrous fibre with the least waste, which our mainly seam-free technology allows.
Bosie Knitwear was started by Juliet Buchan in 2014. Juliet studied Art & Design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen. She specialised in Textiles and Surface Design in the disciplines of Knit and Printmaking, graduating with a 1st class honours in 2005.
For traditional, environmental and ethical reasons, you will find Bosie Knitwear is;
- Always quality pure new wool.
- Always 100% spun and knitted locally, and with care, in Scotland.
