Who we are
Finesse Knits is a small designer knitwear business run by Ulla-Maija, designing and making knitwear and accessories from her home studio in England. Ulla-Maija learned to hand knit and crochet from a very young age and is self-taught in machine knitting. She is passionate about designing unique, wearable, timeless knitwear and accessories and is influenced by her Scandinavian background simple, minimalist and functional. Ulla-Maija is inspired by everything around her and she translates her ideas into knitted shapes and patterns using carefully sourced, high quality lambswool from British family run mills. All of her work is created on a hand-powered knitting machine and is finished by hand.
Ulla-Maija is committed to quality, value and sustainability and she achieves this by combining traditional craft and natural fibres to complement modern, contemporary living.
