Calling all Donna Wilson creature enthusiasts out there – we need your help!
We are working on new creatures for our spring collection and so far, we have developed a cheeky little chipmunk… but our chipmunk needs a friend!
Can you think of a new Donna Wilson creature, and tell us a little bit about who they are?
You may want to take a look at our current creature family to get an idea of the kinds of character traits they have. Each one has a personality, with likes and dislikes.
Please submit your suggestions as a comment below by October 28th (two weeks from now) and we will select a winner who will win their very own one-of-a-kind Mini Giant!
Feel free to submit multiple suggestions if you’d like, and this competition is open to everyone around the world.

We recently added a couple new styles to our collection of fabric, which Donna was inspired to design in an effort to encourage people to be more creative and make things at home again.
She remembers: “When I was young, my mum used to make dresses for me and my sister, and I still remember so clearly all the fabrics that she used. I think there was much more of a culture of making things back then… Everyone made clothes, curtains, and duvets. I really believe that if you make something yourself, you enjoy the final product much more as you put your love and time into it.”
And for one month only, we’ll be giving away our Cap Sleeve Top Pattern for FREE when you buy 2 metres of any of our fabrics.
Tell your friends and share on Facebook!
Our collection of fabric features some of Donna’s signature motifs drawn from nature – clouds, trees, and other references to her childhood growing up on a farm in Aberdeenshire, and in keeping with our commitment to support local manufacturing, all of the fabrics in the collection are printed in the UK.
As you know, we are counting down the days until out first ever women’s knitwear launch in just over a week! Here’s a little background about the collection of jumpers and how the collection came about…
‘Jumpers and Ice Cream’ is a family of five exquisitely soft woolly jumpers inspired by rainy Sundays, mittened bike rides to the circus, and other instances in which unlikely pairings yield magical results. The collection features an array of vibrant colours and playful geometric patterns that feel simultaneously fresh and nostalgic.
With her first collection of knitwear, Donna set out to create wearable garments with the same sense of humour and off-beat charm found in her range of home accessories, the appeal of Donna’s work having always been their ability to brighten up the every day.
While designing the collection, Donna envisioned the people who would wear the pieces and the lives they lead:
“I imagined the jumpers on all kinds of interesting people and what they would be doing while wearing them – an abstract artist picking out aubergines at the farmers market, a circus performer taking her tea break, or an accountant wanting to wear something different on the weekend.
“It was important to me that the jumpers felt familiar and friendly, but could also be worn to make a statement. The jumpers are for anyone who wants to wear something special, cosy, colourful, and fun.”
“I still remember taking around my first dolls to them when I was still studying at the Royal College of Art. I still think of Couverture as one of the first tastemakers; back then there weren’t many curated lifestyle concept stores around and working with them really was the beginning of my business. Launching my first collection of women’s knitwear with Couverture feels like such a natural thing, like the journey’s come full circle.”
A nod to Donna’s Scottish roots, and in keeping with the studio’s commitment to local manufacturing, each jumper is made in Scotland. All the garments are fully fashioned out of 100% lambswool.
Join us for the knitwear launch party on Tuesday 14th October, 4-8pm at Couverture! We will be screening our specially commissioned film by Oliver’s Island. Enjoy a whisky tipple and live Scottish music by fiddler Lewis Murray while you browse the collection.
