Otto & Spike have been knitting in Brunswick since 1969. Back when they first started knitting, Brunswick was the centre of Melbourne’s textile industry. Nowadays, things have changed and very few knit in Australia, however, Otto and Spike are still designing and producing fine knitted goods locally. Using beautiful pure Australian lambswool, most of the yarn and wool they use is surplus from an industry that has gradually disappeared from Australia. As well as taking great care with their choices of yarn, each of their machines has a special role in the making and creating of their knitted pieces. They have an amazing collection of knitting machinery, enough to document the last century of knitted history.
Note: This business proudly manufactures 100% in Australia.
