The Trustees are very pleased to announce that we are now able to fulfil orders for Knitted Knockers following our closure due to Covid-19. Please note that we anticipate that we will receive a high volume of orders following our re-opening which may result in an extended time frame for receiving an order over and above our usual 28 day expectations.
Before filling in a Knitted Knocker Request Form,
please read all of the following information carefully.
COVID-19 NOTICE FOR KNOCKER RECIPIENTS
Please note that Knitted Knockers are handmade by a volunteer in their home. We have introduced additional procedures to mitigate the risk of transfer of Covid-19.
- Volunteers will not knit knockers if they, or any member of their household, are self-isolating or in quarantine.
The volunteers are washing their hands with soap for 20 seconds (or using unscented 60% or above alcohol hand sanitiser) every time prior to handling the wool/knockers.
Any work-in-progress is stored in a sealed bag
Once completed, the knockers are packaged and the date and time that the parcel was sealed is noted on the parcel. Government guidance is that any risk of COVID-19 is significantly reduced by storing goods in a sealed container for 48 hours.
The knockers will not be taken to the post office until at least 48 hours have elapsed since the parcel was sealed. The parcel will then be in the postal system for 2-3 days.
Upon receipt of the knockers you may wish to wait longer before opening the parcel to further mitigate any risk. You may also wish to wash the knockers before wearing them. The knockers come with washing instructions.
If you have any questions please contact us using the contact form
Please read our terms and Conditions before filling in the form to request your free knockers.

Knitted knockers are more popular and are suitable for both mastectomy and lumpectomy. They are softer than the crochet style and will mould to the shape of your bra.
Crochet knockers are a more fixed shape and are not suitable for lumpectomy.
I have allergies, will the knockers be suitable for me?
All our knockers are made using 100% cotton yarn. They are stuffed with polyfiber filling. (Same filling used in toys).
What are Aqua Knockers?
Aqua Knockers are a knitted knocker designed especially for use in water based activities.
Each one is handmade using a soft acrylic yarn and stuffed using shower scrunchies.
Knitted Knockers UK trialled these knockers with the support of 60 ladies who tested them during various water sports from swimming and paddle boat racing to simply relaxing in the hot tub.
Feedback revealed they were comfortable, lightweight and looked very natural under swimwear. Ladies also found they dried quickly.
You may choose from light, bright or dark and they can be made with or without a nipple. All our 'Aquas are knitted and are suitable for mastectomy and lumpectomy. As with our normal knockers they are also fully adjustable by adding or removing stuffing.
Who are sample packs for?
Knitted Knocker packs can be sent to any organisation within the UK who support post mastectomy and or lumpectomy ladies.
Our 100% Knitted Knockers all made by our volunteers will be included within the packs in various available sizes. If there are particular sizes you would like please let us know.
