Funi is an ethical custom knitwear company with a soul. Everything we create comes from years of experience behind the needles and a deep seated commitment to doing things a little bit differently.
If you want to design your own beanie or choose from our ready-made knitted hats, you can trust that every bobble hat and bit of knitwear comes with our 'Respect and Protect' seal. Whether it's using recycled yarns, vegetable ink in our printers or British granny power instead cheap foreign labour - we try to make sure every item comes to you with as much consideration for our scene and for other people. From our seasonal collections of statement scarves and beanies to our 'create your own' headwear, we've got it covered. Established in 2008, our main priority is to bring you top notch gear that you'll love, but in doing so we didn't want to compromise on our morals. So have a browse, buy a beanie and enjoy.
Proud to offer our Custom Knits in 100% Merino... As of 2018 we switched our stock wool from acrylic to natural merino. The main reason is because we're trying to lower our impact on the planet and do away with tiny man-made fibres getting in to the ocean. Even though natural yarn is more expensive to use, the properties of this wonder-wool far outweigh this irksome fact. Read on for the low-down on marvellous merino.
Gaargh - busy, busy, busy. We're just in the process of rejigging the Funi site and updating our wool stocks. Keep an eye online for our new merino custom knits coming soon. Sorry we've been horrendous at keeping up with any news on this wee blog. Meanwhile, here's a lovely snap of Joan our eldest knitter who's back knitting for us this week.
