Glenmuir, supplier to the European Ryder Cup team, is showcasing the journey its iconic sweaters take from their initial stage of knitting right through to their embroidery.
The sweaters were first made back in 1891, when the first piece of knitwear came off its looms in its Hawick factory in the Scottish Borders. Since then the Scottish brand has continued to craft knitwear made from 100% lambswool and cashmere at the Hawick factory, with marketing and administration taking place at the company’s headquarters in Lanark.
"the touch and feel of generations of our craftsmen is unique within the golf industry."
“The craftsmen and craftswomen take great care in creating our knitwear at the Hawick factory to ensure Glenmuir sweaters are produced to the highest standards,” said Colin Mackay, Glenmuir’s commercial director.
“This attention to detail - from the water we use in the washing process, coming from the burn which flows through the Hawick factory, to the touch and feel of generations of our craftsmen - is unique within the golf industry and is captured in this film.”
Glenmuir’s managing director, Mikhel Ruia added: “There is something truly unique about a Glenmuir sweater. We are delighted to be able to share this process through our film, which showcases the beautiful combination of passion, craftsmanship and care which goes into making our sweaters.”

The video gives us an insight into the expertise and skill that goes into the creation of the sweaters, crafted in the same factory where it all began over 120 years ago.
The business is still family-run, and its clothing has been worn by both Masters champions, Ryder Cup stars and Open winners on some of the world’s most iconic golf courses. No surprise, then, that its Haywick factory is internationally regarded as the home of knitwear.
