Who are My Cosy Store?
We’re a small family-run business in the Scottish knitwear capital of Hawick, made up of Robert, Chris, Andy, Sue and Nick. Our Scottish cashmere and lambswool accessories are sold in shops and online stores all over the world – even at the Scottish Parliament! We’ve been going for 12 years, and together, we have more than 100 years’ experience in the cashmere and woollen industry, so we’re well steeped in the town’s knitwear and design tradition.
Who does what?
Robert: When he isn’t busy being the boss and running the show, Rob works on his awesome G-scale garden railway.
Chris: The second-in-command, a keen skier, part-time football trainer and full-time guru of the wondrous Shima electronic knitting machine. Always on the lookout for new design inspiration.
Andy: Our scarf knitting expert is also a keen road cyclist, often spotted out in the Border countryside.
Sue: Our stitching and tabbing expert, Sue keeps us all going, and has been known to come into work at 4am. Spare time? She just works! But don’t worry, we’re onto her…
Nick: Trainee Nick is learning the business, and puts his skills to great use working at the youth café in Hawick. He’s also an avid mountain biker and snowboarder.
