  • We are so excited for this new thicker blend of Lalland. Just like the original dk weight Lalland, it's spun from 100% Scottish Lambswool, and is amazingly soft. 

    Di and her team have worked really hard to create this STUNNING colour-blended wool which has depth, softness and a desire to be worn!  The unique, multi-directional spin of each ply gives the yarn strength and 3D definition for each stitch.

    We find this yarn to produce sturdy, hardworking but luxurious fabric when knit, crocheted or woven.

    Each colourway is a heavenly mix individual tones, blended to produce a complex, heathered yarn with tons of depth and interest:

    Magnolia: mix of a soft ballet pink with washed stone
    Oak: all moody green-charcoal-blues
    Firebird: a mesmerising coral-orange-red blend
    Fingfisher: vibrant and alive with clear blues, greys, turquoise and violet
    Corryvreckan: rich, flattering navy with emerald and deep blue
    Storm: cool heathered grey neutral with a hint of bluey-green
    Crowdie: pure perfect warm white - plain & gorgeously simple

    This yarn is soft right next to the skin! And it's perfect for patterns like OAK, Arabesque Gilet, Gruainne Frock Coat, Twisted Hazel wrist warmers (patterns).

    Proudly made in the UK. Hand-wash in warm water and lay flat to dry.

  • To create original and intensely beautiful pieces of hand knit which not only protect us and tell a story, but transport us in the wearing, into a dream time inspired by the ever-changing land and seascapes of Scotland. To have the wearer feel the spirit of the wild free mountains, and islands, wherever they may be.

  • My knitwear design studio has its origins in a semi-ruined croft on the Isle of Skye. I had settled there in 1983 with little more than a rucksack containing a tent, wool and knitting needles.

    I have worked with many Yarn companies over the  years and created for Rowan the Rowan Scottish Tweed, which was made at the Harris Tweed mill in Carloway, Isle of Lewis. I wrote a book of designs in this amazing yarn, 'Shorelines" with patterns focused on intarsia, colourwork and gansey knitting.

    From those early beginnings, I have developed an international fashion brand, working with leading designers including Graeme Black, Erdos 1436, Hancock VA, Mark Fast, Topshop Unique, Cabbages & Roses, Sophia Kokosolaki and Nike.  Read more about our Collaborations

    Now based at Comielaw Farm on the Balcaskie Estate we have a beautiful showroom and design studio alongside a work room for classes and a kitchen. 

    We have recruited a great team of skilled home-knitters based across Scotland. There is a core specialist team, who live within a 15-mile radius, to create the one-off pieces and special commissions desired by private clients, fashion designers and the catwalk.

    A single Di Gilpin garment could take us as long as two months to create, hand-knitted in the finest Scottish yarn, inspired by our rich cultural heritage and provenance, making it among the most intricate and show-stopping pieces of couture available anywhere in the world

    For the past few years we have been working in tandem with La Fetiche, a Paris Glasgow Fashion label founded by April Crichton and Orely Forestier.
