About House of Cheviot

The House of Cheviot is situated in the historic town of Hawick in the Scottish Borders, an area famous for its knitwear. Our clientele ranges from royalty to gamekeepers, and our military connections include the Royal Regiment of Scotland. We are very proud of our association with the film industry, especially the Harry Potter films for which we created the Hogwarts socks, pullovers and scarves.

At the House of Cheviot, we combine traditional skills developed over 200 years with the very latest knitting technology, to produce the finest collection of country and kilt socks. For over 10 years, our team in Hawick has been responsible for creating some of the finest country socks, shooting stockings and kilt hose available. Our enviable reputation for quality means that the House of Cheviot supplies retailers, wholesalers and distributors at the top end of the market in the UK and, now, through our partnership with New House Highland, in North America.

For the country market, our sock range offers cushion comfort alongside technical performance; for the highland kilt market, we have the capability to offer a bespoke service to create hose to match most clan tartans.

Our traditional and contemporary sock and hose designs are machine or hand knitted in the finest merino wool blend before being hand finished. During manufacture, House of Cheviot products pass through many pairs of skilled hands, ensuring that all of our finished garments are of a consistently high standard.
