Crystal Knitwear

 British Knitwear Manufacturers 

Welcome to Crystal Knitwear

Established in 1990, Crystal Knitwear has over 30 years experience in the textile manufacturing industry.

We are British knitwear manufacturers specialising in bespoke knitwear.  By carefully selecting natural fibres such as; British Wool, Merino Wool, Lambswool and Cotton Yarns,  we enhance the durability and sustainability of our knitwear. Our British Wool and Merino Yarns are sourced in the United Kingdom and the varied palette of colours can be viewed here.   


Richmond by Crystal Knitwear

We have our own in-house label ‘Richmond Knitwear’, a collection of our own designs which customers are welcome to utilise.  Customers own branding can be incorporated with prior arrangement.  More details on the range can be found here.   Within the Richmond range, we have created our own stock service collection and a forward order collection


Independent family run business

As an independent family run business we can give our customers a more personal service.  We strive to reduce our carbon footprint by offering smaller production runs with ethical sources of local yarn.  

We are an official licensee of British Wool, this ensures that our British Wool yarn is traceable and in turn supports our British Wool Sheep Farmers.  You can read more about the fantastic work British Wool do here.

Customers’ own visions and designs are attained using our custom made sample and design facilities.  We have our own in-house design software and modern knitting plant based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.  For more information and to see examples of what we produce,  please visit our bespoke knitwear section.

From field to wardrobe…

Our knitwear has explicitly always been ‘Made in Mansfield’ since 1990.  We are rightly proud of our home town which has a long heritage in knitwear and textiles.  Please view the video below for a glimpse of the many processes and highly skilled operatives who create your sweater.  All steps of the process, from initial design to packing are completed here in the UK, creating a 100% genuine British product.
