Artisan Out of Stock Batches
As a brand who is a stong advocate for buy less, love more, we make less. Therefore you may find some of our items are out of stock quickly. Our current stock quantites are always listed, therefore if you do love our item and it is in stock we just want you to know we may not be creating the exact same item again in the future. We love how unique our creations are, just like their owners!
What will they say in 200 years....
I am a menace - I love this ‘kilt’ so much, I’m wearing it almost daily. It’s easy, practical, stylish AND it’s wonderfully warm: what’s not to love? I’ve received plenty of admiring comments; most when I’ve worn it as a ‘fishtail’!
Wow 🤩 what can I say?! What a beautiful scarf this is. I have had so many compliments about the lovely colours! The quality is fabulous and it feels really special to wear 💕
I decided to purchase a VIR membership for two reasons: it helps support a business whose core values are important, and it also offers me dividends for future purchases at the same time. This is a clever way of showing support for a company, whilst also offering an incentive for future purchases.
Having purchased a Lounger early this year, I was impressed with the quality of the product. I was also taken with the commitment of Claire and her staff to offering products that are not only stylish, but are also ecologically-sustainable and long-lasting.
The VIR Membership is a lovely way to support one of my favorite artisan small businesses, and build up purchase points for my next Prickly Thistle treasure.
Bought the Rebel Washboard as a Christmas gift. Tempted to keep it as it is so well made and designed - just perfect.
I purchased an E-Card for my wife (a supporter of Clare's) for Christmas. I know she will love spending it at the Prickly Thistle!
I had a fantastic time at the workshop. The girls were very welcoming, friendly and interesting. Lovely atmosphere in the tent with beautifully arranged items made by Prickly Thistle. Learned about lots of interesting ways to make use of old /unused clothing. The tour of the mill was fantastic great chatting to Ross who was very informative on the running of the machines. Thank you again for a great afternoon.
Love the quality of the cloth and the way it fits me
Bought this after seeing the fabulous Miriam Margoles and Alan Cumming in their road trip in Scotland. What a fantastic enterprise, new immediately that my husband would love this quirky ‘cheese board’ to have alongside his whisky. Arrived obviously packed with care. Have recommended this site to family and friends .
Beautiful colours, Beautiful finish. Really soft and cosy, and as my husband says...totally appropriate for the menace I am. I love it!
Extremely beautiful. I buy a new thing for the. Christmas tree every year. This year it brcame This One. I had a deja vu for my early as a nurse when we had many glass ampoules eith medicin. I love my spindle and the sustainability it stands for.
King regards and merry Christmas
Excellent experience on purchase. Excellent website. Purchase arrived on expected date. Reaction on Christmas Day awaited.
Absolutely adore my coat and can barely take it off!! There is nothing for me to criticise and I will be buying more things from you soon. It was also fab to have the spindle decoration and I can’t wait to hang it on my tree.
Thank you so much and have a very Merry Christmas and have a Happy Hogmanay (I’m married to a Scotsman) xx
So warm , cosy and stylish. A one off in terms of tartan. I love it.
I love this beautiful coat and the service, as well. Thank you, Prickly Thistle. I have enjoyed our association in making this purchase. Hope to work with you again (and soon!) Karen from Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
