Here are some of the more common questions we get asked here at Ninian but feel free to contact us if you need further information.

Can you make a garment to a custom size or colour?

Unfortunately we don't do alterations to our existing design sizes or colour ways as it takes us a long time to program our machines for each item.

Can I machine wash my garment?

We don't recommend washing your garments in the washing machine as they will likely shrink. See our care section for more help on washing your garments. 

Why am I having to wait for an item to be made?

As we're a small business we don't always have every colour way in every design in stock. We'll let you know a delivery estimate for any item which we're making to order.

 What yarn do you use in your garments?

Most of our knitwear is made using 100% Scottish Lambswool, we use a lightweight yarn with a luxurious finish. Each item will state what yarn is used on the product information page.

Can I come to see you make an item?

We love having visitors in our studio, if you're in the shop just ask and one of us will happily take you to see where and how we make our textiles.

Do you make commissions?

We've made lots of commissions in the past and worked on exciting projects and collaborations from costume for films to art installations. Feel free to contact us if you have an exciting project to discuss. 

Are your garments hand knitted?

All our garments are machine knitted and hand finished by us in Shetland. It would take us far too long and cost you way too much if they were hand knitted.
