Johnstons of Elgin // Scottish Cashmere // Made in Scotland

Here are a few images from our trip to the Scottish Borders…

 

On our last day we were given a fascinating tour of Johnstons of Elgin to see how their factory runs and how they produce such beautiful pieces of knitwear with such highly skilled workers.

Sock Knitting Machines creating the whole sock with fashioning and striping on one machine.

We were lucky to see some luxury and premium brands production bulk runs such as Chanel and Christopher Kane…sorry I didn’t get the chance to take photos!

We ended the day by buying a knitting machine from a local knitter and flat packing it into our car. This is how you drive a knitting machine from Scotland to London..
