Gauges & Stitch Structures

We have a wide range of gauges (gg) available, including 12gg, 12gg Intarsia, 8gg Intarsia, 8gg & 7gg. This allows us to offer 1 ply cashmere through to 6 ply cashmere, in varying stitch structures and tensions.

We can also help you choose an appropriate body shape, stitch structure and gauge for your developments. You will have access to extensive stitch structure, trim & finishing libraries.



Our highly experienced technicians can produce unique and complex intarsia pieces on our SIG123SV and SIR123SV machinery - in 12gg or 8gg - using the latest Shima Apex 3-4 design systems.


Yarn & Colours

We use only the best quality Cashmere yarn from reputable suppliers, who offer traceability and quality assurance of their product.

Each spinner has their own range of colours on offer - giving you a colour choice in excess of 400 shades per season.

Our Cashmere suppliers include;

  • Todd & Duncan (Scotland)
  • Loro Piana (Italy)
  • Cariaggi (Italy)


Sample Development

We will work closely with you to develop your collection from sketch to catwalk.

Autumn / Winter & Spring / Summer are peak periods which require careful planning. We will work with you on the critical path to ensure that your samples are with you in time for showing & selling.

Outside of peak periods – once we have all the information required we can generally have samples to you in 2 to 3 weeks.


Small Production Runs & Low Minimums

Shorts of Hawick is structured to offer small production runs commercially.

Our target is to achieve a minimum sales average of 75 units per style developed - so if we develop a 10 piece collection, we would expect to receive a minimum order of 750 units. However, this can be split over styles, colours, sizes and deliveries.


Re-Orders & Top Ups

We offer a re-order & top up service with no minimum order requirements.

If your stock is running low, you can place an order for the extra pieces that you need. We will fulfil the re-order in around 4 - 6 weeks, giving you the confidence that sell-through and budget will be maximised.


On Time Delivery & 100% Complete

Our state of the art production system allows us to continually monitor your order as it progresses through the factory to ensure that you will receive your order on time and complete.

In the unlikely event that your order is subject to delay for reasons beyond our control (e.g. due to yarn availability) we would contact you at an early stage so that you may be involved in the resolution - for example to substitute the delayed shade.


Flexible Delivery Scheduling

Once you have placed your order, our Production Manager will work with you to plan your delivery date. Whether this be one or split deliveries, we will work with you to ensure that your requirements are met.


Book Future Production Space

In certain circumstances we are able to book production space if you are not yet in a position to place your order.
