You can view our prices in the following currencies:
- Euro €
- US dollar $
- AU dollar $
- GB pound £
However, keep in mind that, upon checkout, all prices convert back to Euro and you'll be charged in Euros depending on the daily exchange rate (but you won't be charged extra for currency conversion).
Splitit is a payment method solution enabling you to pay for purchases with an existing credit card by splitting the cost into interest and fee-free monthly payments, without additional registrations or applications.
Installment payments are taken monthly on the same date as you make your first payment.
You can check your payment due date in the Splitit consumer portal here.
Splitit helps consumers use their existing credit line to turn purchases into smaller, monthly payments. As debit cards aren't credit we are unable to accept them.

Our headquarters are in Vilnius, Lithuania but our design and brand team is based in New York.
Our warehouse is located in the small town of Prienai and our home and partner factories are located throughout rural Lithuania.
You can find more information about where each knit is produced on its product page.
We recommend you dry-clean all of our knits.
Pro tip: Be on the look-out for sustainable dry cleaners that use wet cleaning and carbon dioxide cleaning methods.
Wool in general is a self-sufficient material that doesn't require a lot of washing (it's great for the planet AND your laundry runs). If you're not able to dry-clean your knit, air-drying or steaming also works.
We strongly recommend against washing your knits in the washing machine even if you have a hand-wash programme. This can potentially irritate the material, which can result in a shrunken/rough knit. And no one wants that.
If you've purchased one of our wool knits, you might notice pilling when wearing the knit. Don't worry, this is totally normal: wool is a natural fiber and ages like fine wine (it pills less and less with time). We don't use synthetic blends of other materials in our yarn, so any pilling that you might see is a natural process for any wool knitwear. You can gently remove it with your hands or by using a fabric shaver.
If you'd like to give any of your knits new life you can try:
- Using a fabric shaver to remove any access pilling that might occur from the natural yarn.
- Using a fabric spray to remove any unwanted odors and bring a fresh smell to your knit.
- Using a steamer to steam your knitwear. By steaming, you'll be able to not only clean your knit but also give it a softer texture.
We recommend you store all of your knits folded in a shelf, away from any harsh odors.
Where possible, try not to hang your knit up. This can alter the original shape of it.
Pilling is a natural life cycle of most knits made from natural yarn. But don't worry, your knit will pill less and less as time goes on. However, if you want to remove access pilling from your knit or any other garments, try using a fabric shaver.
We recommend our Pilo Fabric Shaver. But any other similar shaver on the market can also ensure that your garments stay looking fresh and good as new!
Not sure how they work? fabric shavers have small razors that remove any excess pilling and give garments a new life. They can be used on knits, trousers, outerwear garments, hats, gloves and any other clothing items that need a bit of love.
Wool is a very self-sufficient material and it may not always need a wash - just a quick freshen up. You can do this by air-drying your knit or using a fabric spray.
Our Fabric Spray is great for this. It's not just another scented fabric spray. It's designed to eliminate any unwanted odors and give your knits a full on boost of freshness.
All of our knits are made from natural yarns, which means they don't need regular washing (wool is great at the whole #selfcare thing) but a fabric spray is a great solution to ensure your knits stay extra fresh in-between dry-cleaning washes.
Our Cirrus Steamer is basically the magic wand of the knitted garment world. This handy steamer provides an effective way of washing and ironing knits.
Steaming gives clothes a fresh feel and can also make your knits softer to the touch, more delicate and bouncy. Better yet - you can steam pretty much anything!
We're happy to make a few tweaks to our handmade items to make sure your knit fits perfectly. However, this also means extra time for reworking knit structure, training our knitters and sourcing materials. So we charge a small fee to cover this.
Contact our customer care rep at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our contact form and we can chat about the changes you desire. Once your vision is clear, add the "Alterations" item to you cart. Keep in mind that multiple alterations of size and color will increase alteration pricing.
Please note: all custom-made items are designed specifically for you and are therefore final sale with no returns.
We charge a small fee to account for extra work needed to restructure the knit and source materials. Alteration prices start at €20 per product and depend on the type of alteration that will be needed.
For more details on alteration costs, feel free to contact our customer care rep at email@example.com or fill out our contact form
- Unfortunately, alterations can't be applied to hand-finished items.
We love that you're interested in custom-made items! Unfortunately, we work hard on our current designs and therefore don't have the time to produce custom-made items. However, we can always tweak any of our handmade knits' color or size.
Once you've picked out your knit and added it to your cart, find the alterations item on our website and add this to your cart, too.
Then, you can go ahead and check out and mark any needed alterations in the buyer's note section.
Please note: alteration prices may vary so be sure to contact us beforehand.
Sorry! All custom items are designed specifically for you and are final sale.
Knitters Dream Fund
The Knitters' Dream Fund gives you the chance to donate amount of your choice (or make a separate donation) directly towards a dream of a woman who made your knit.
The Knotty Ones was started with the dream to provide stable jobs, fair wages and financial independence to women, mostly stay-at-home moms in rural areas of Lithuania, who otherwise would not have these opportunities in life. So The Knitters' Dream Fund lets us go that extra mile, and with your help, we can make some dreams come true!
You can make a donation with every item that you buy via our store.
To do this, select the item variant that includes an extra donation that goes directly into our Knitters' Dream Fund.
If you'd like to make a separate donation you can do so by clicking here. Your knitter will be over the moon!
All Knitters' Dream Fund donations are documented and are visible to all our knitters.
It's important to us to be transparent with our team, so we keep a log of all our philanthropists and the sums that are donated. Every knitter can then see fund's balance and keep track of how much each dream costs.
We also share updates about each knitter's dream on our social channels.
You can keep track of our fulfilled dreams by signing up to our newsletter and following our journey on social media. We love to share, so don't miss out!
You can also see our latest fulfilled dream here - Marina got her driving license!!
Due to COVID-19, our Knitters Dream Fund has come to a slight halt, but nevertheless we are extremely excited about the dreams we will be able to fulfill once the quarantine status lifts in Lithuania.
