Peter Scott Knitwear & Jumpers
Peter Scott has played a pivotal role in the history of knitwear in the Scottish borders for more than 135 years.
Working in collaboration with his Uncle under the name Adamson & Scott, at the dawn of the Industrial Age, Peter Scott created and patented unshrinkable knitwear. Using the 'Pesco' brand name, his company offered functionality and comfort in unshrinkable knitwear; truly an innovation in the 1870s. Peter Scott is recognised as a Victorian entrepreneur, philanthropist and innovator.
The same attention to detail and innovation which inspired the founder continues at the heart of our hand crafted manufacturing process. His legacy is a company with an international reputation for fine craftsmanship and luxurious fabrics.
