Find unique knitwear online

The William Lockie brand is for people who demand quality and style. For people who seek comfort and durability in knitwear and love visual refinement. No question: the Scottish label has its price. But in return, the customer gets high-quality natural fibres produced in a way that is unique in the world. This is quality that you can see and feel.

Each natural fibre has its own function: Lambswool is warm and soft, Geelong is a special kind of particularly high-quality Lambswool fibre. And cashmere is the king of softness and warmth. Discover high-necked jumpers with buttons, zips, turtlenecks or hoods. Or choose elegant and body-hugging garments with a V-neck. Jumpers with round collars, which you can find in the same variety online on our site, have a somewhat more casual effect.

William Lockie: A knitting company makes history

What is it about a manufacturer that has been producing the highest quality and softest wool jumpers from the finest natural fibres for almost 150 years? A company that sets standards and is considered the market leader in knitwear?

William Lockie has been producing in the same region, the Scottish Borders, since 1874. These knitwear products of unique quality are noble, luxurious and sophisticated in every detail. There are no fashionable frills. Simple understatement applies: the Scots simply know what matters when quality is required!

What is the key to the continuity of the Scottish family business? Probably it is the combination of various factors. Craftsmanship as well as the grown, trusting cooperation with long-standing suppliers and knitters are the prerequisite that such jumpers can be created. The standards are high. Lockie, as the company is affectionately called, only buys top-quality wool. This comes from goats in Australia, China and Mongolia.

Quality and precision in every single top are created during the manufacturing process in Hawick on the banks of the River Teviot under the hands of experienced professionals who also come from the region. The finest natural fibres are cleaned on site in soft Scottish waters before being knitted into luxurious wool jumpers. Traditional skills are combined with highly developed technology to make precision visible in every detail. Quality you can feel and see. Tradition obliges!

It should be mentioned that Wiliam Lockie does not use wool from yarn manufacturers who allow the mulesing of sheep. Furthermore, Wiliam Lockie makes sure that the "Five Freedoms" of the Farm Animal Welfare Council are respected.

Huge selection of jumpers, cardigans and jumpers

The Scottish label offers the right wool jumper for every occasion. Each natural fibre has its own function. For example, cashmere jumpers come in different thread counts: single, double or even four-thread. It depends on how thick and warming you want your top to be.

These garments are particularly popular with our gentlemen:

Classically elegant and indispensable in a man's wardrobe.

Body-hugging Geelong jumpers for men emphasise a classic look and are one of the basics of every men's fashion. They have a V or round collar and close-fitting, soft cuffs: so no cold can penetrate.

Furthermore, this knitwear convinces with its fine knit. The tops are made of high-quality geelong wool. Geelong wool is a special lambswool that comes from South Australian sheep. Australian sheep are world famous for their fine fur. These Pedigree sheep are shorn at the age of seven months. Then their wool is spun extra fine. Finally, they are dyed with beautiful colours before the jumpers are knitted.

The characteristic of the high-quality Geelong wool is that it does not pill, as it is extremely firm. With these jumpers, you can also be sure that the cut and shape will not change with wear or washing. A very practical feature is that many of these jumpers can be machine washed at 30 degrees.

Lambswool jumpers: uncomplicated and cosily warm

When the temperatures drop, cuddly jumpers are a must! With a turtleneck and cable knit, patent knit or with a beaded pattern: the Scottish manufacturer knows what's trendy, fits perfectly and keeps you warm all around. Depending on your preferences, the collar can be different. While some men prefer soft round collars, others choose collars with zippers. This zip can be easily closed if necessary and just as easily opened. These models can be perfectly combined with a white or blue shirt, for example.

In addition to Lambswool Sweaters, you can discover the highlights of Scottish knitting art in our online shop: cashmere jumpers in the best quality. Genuine cashmere is not called the "fabric of kings" without reason. William Lockie only uses selected quality. Wool that comes from mountain goats in Central Asian Mongolia and China. Due to the icy weather conditions, these mountain animals have a particularly dense, fluffy coat. Their undercoat protects the animals even in freezing cold of minus 40 degrees! Only this so-called undercoat is processed into the world-famous wool classics by William Lockie after many individual handicraft steps in Scotland.

Pure comfort: jackets made of fine wool

William Lockie also has a lot to offer in cardigans. You will find the sporty model in a rustic look with a thick, soft collar and two outer patch pockets. The model gets a special touch thanks to the mottled wool fibre. The large buttons are not only beautiful eye-catchers, they are also easy to open and close. The model promises casual wearing comfort, for example, in combination with a rustic, checked shirt, with a wide leather belt, jeans and a denim jacket.

Are you looking for a fine cardigan that also looks good under a jacket? Then we recommend the body-hugging William Lockie Gordon Cardigan with five high-quality buttons. Combine a business shirt and T-shirt with this all-rounder as well as a finely knitted jumper with a V-neck or round collar.

Simply warm and classically elegant

You can't always wear a pullover to work. What could be more natural than combining a waistcoat or slipover with a shirt under a jacket? Online in our William Lockie store you will find waistcoats made of single-thread cashmere or fine Geelong lambswool. Would you rather do without buttons? Then the simple but decidedly elegant slipover is the perfect choice. Knitted from the finest lambswool, this model can also be machine-washed at 30 degrees gentle cycle. With the Oxton slipover in single-thread cashmere, on the other hand, you can rely on even more warmth and the finest feel.

Current trends in knitwear for women

Highly elegant, warming and soft, William Lockie also dresses the ladies. The Charlotte cashmere jumper has a round neck, fine cuffs and four-thread cashmere to keep out the cold. Wear this classic for many occasions, including under a waistcoat, a sturdy cardigan or a warming down jacket.

Set accents with colour

In general, the trends are towards pastel and natural shades, a sophisticated grey, a deep blue, but also powder or a strong berry tone. Choose a natural shade if you are going for discreet elegance. Colours, on the other hand, are visual eye-catchers. They express joie de vivre and individual feelings. Gentle and energetic shades can be perfectly combined with black or dark blue.

How do I find the right size?

You can find the right size using our William Lockie size chart. This not only shows you the sizes, but also the back length, the chest circumference and the arm length, which are assigned to the individual sizes.

Basically, William Lockie jumpers sit comfortably on the body without constricting. So you feel comfortable with every movement. At the same time, body-hugging styles skilfully accentuate your silhouette, such as the slipover, Gordon waistcoat or Oxton turtleneck. This quality is luxury to wear, warm and look at!

Luxury knitwear with that special something

William Lockie is the brand for people who appreciate nature and craftsmanship. The fine handle and soft material resemble a precious wood, enchanting with beauty and naturalness at first sight.

Unlike companies that chase after short-lived trends, at William Lockie every single jumper speaks of lasting values. From knitters who have learnt their craft and make each model with love. Quality that you can feel and see.

Stylish understatement characterises all the knitwear from the Scots. These jumpers are all about comfort, perfect fit, beautiful colours and durability. You won't throw away any of our online models after one season. On the contrary!
