Professional alteration and repair of better knit clothing.
Knit Alteration & Design

If you have a sweater or other knit item in need of alteration or repair, you have come to the right place. We work exclusively on knit clothing.

For over 25 years Knit Alteration & Design has provided quality altertion and repair of better knit items to clothing stores and retail customers.

Fine wool and cashmere sweaters, as well as many other designer knit items can be altered and repaired with great success!  This includes brand names like Loro Piana, Dale of Norway, Hermes, White and Warren, Pure, Eileen Fisher and many more.

You can have sweater sleeves shortened, knit hems altered and many other knit alterations done professionally.

Our repairs are made by reknitting with yarn from the garment whenever possible.  We do not do mending, per se.  Retrieving yarn from the garment is part of the art of reknitting, and truly produces superior results.

To send your items, place a pin or tape near the areas in need of repair.  If an alteration is required, simply place a safety pin at the desired length.  We will understand that you want the same finished appearance as the garment now has, unless you indicate otherwise.
