School Knitwear from Stock and Bespoke
We have supplied high quality school knitwear for many years. We work with the brand ‘Charles Kirk’ (following the closure of Balmoral Knitwear) both for stock school pullovers and cardigans, and for bespoke styles to match school colours.
Until September 2019, the brand was operated by Charles Kirk & Co of Sussex. From 1st October 2019 the ‘Charles Kirk’ brand is operated by Flamingo Apparel Textiles along side their existing ‘Coolflow’ brand.
Yarns available include:
- 100% Acrylic
- 50% Cotton 50% Acrylic
- 50% Wool 50% Acrylic
As well as stock styles (ask us for a Charles Kirk price list), bespoke styles are available to order in school colourways. Depending on the style, the yarn and the quantities, these can be made either in the UK or at off-shore manufacturing partners.
For bespoke school pullovers and cardigans, we can match existing colours of blazers, ties or knitwear, either using yarns available from stock, or dying to match.
School Hats and Scarves
We also offer matching bespoke school scarves and hats in low minimum quantities, such as:
Embroidered Russells Sweatshirts, Hoodies and Polo Shirts
We can also supply embroidered and printed stock items, such as Russells sweatshirts, hoodies polo shirts and fleeces:
Embroidered Result Coats and Jackets
Also available are a range of Result jackets and coats:
Bespoke Sweatshirts in School Colours
We also offer bespoke styles of sweatshirts in cotton-feel, yet robust and colour-fast acrylic-cotton-polyester fabric.
Flamingo Apparel Textiles is a long-standing member of the Schoolwear Association and will exhibit the Charles Kirk and the Coolflow ranges at the school uniform trade’s Schoolwear Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
