Lou Dungate has lived a life in knitting. Her grandma and great aunt knitted for soldiers in WW2, her parents collected vintage knitwear and in 2011 she opened a wool shop called The Knit Club.

After professionally knitting for a decade, Lou is collaborating with the first knitting factory to operate in London for 80 years. The eponymous label pays homage to heritage craftsmanship, combining traditional methods with modern shapes and colours. Using only natural and fine fibres, primarily cashmere, each piece has been perfectly considered so that it endures a life well lived.
