Using a variety of specialist techniques, Harley of Scotland create garments of unsurpassed quality.

Seam Free Whole Garment Knitting

Pioneers within the British market of seam free (seamless) whole garment knit technology since 2001. This is a highly complex and innovative technique of flatbed tubular whole garment knitting, offering a superlative fit and a highly competitive price point amongst other Scottish-made sweaters. Complex programming with swift execution makes for beautiful and comfortable products with no bulky side seams.

Seamed Garment Knitting

Fair isle knitting is in our DNA at Harley of Scotland and this tradition continues to this day. Complex all over Jacquards are produced by Harley of Scotland for our own brand, as well as for other private label brands along with our strong tensile seam. This seam method combines the pinpoint pattern matching accuracy of linking with the strong overstitched seam of overlocking, ensuring our Fair Isles and Jacquards align perfectly at each side seam.

Shaggy Brushing

We offer an artisanal teasel brushing technique which lifts and pulls the fibres for a loose and relaxed shaggy brush effect. This is used mainly for Supersoft Shetland knitwear. The traditional teasels – Dipsacus Fullonum, sourced in Europe – are a natural product and no man-made brush can replicate the unique brushing effects of the traditional teasel.
