Knitty Kitty: Underwear Knitted From Sock Yarn

(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Knitty Kitty, which opened last year, was at CurveNY (its second show after Pool in February), offering its signature collection of “knitimates”: knit bikini panties, briefs and halter top bralettes hand loomed in Bali, using 98% acrylic, 2% spandex yarn.

“We are the only knit intimate line in the fashion market,” claims designer Lisa Roberts in a company brochure. “They are for all day or just play,” she told BODY at CurveNY, adding that the target market is the “20 to 30 something crowd.”

These “knitimates” are certainly different. The yarn that Roberts uses is “just like sock yarn,” so the bras and panties have a certain bulk to them. They are knitted in bright, ice cream colors, usually with a motif and edging in a contrasting color: cherry red and sky blue; aqua and cherry red; yellow and blush; lime and evergreen, and so on. Each panty features a different motif: shamrock, cupcake, skull and crossed bones, peace sign, flowers. There are also striped versions and one with a wave pattern.

Knitty Kitty panties really look more like swimwear than underwear, and Roberts acknowledges that she came upon this idea as she was attempting to knit a bathing suit for herself. And it is easier to imagine these “knitimates” being worn as playwear or loungewear or sleepwear rather than hidden under another layer of clothing.

Wholesale prices are $12.50 for the plain panties (no motif), $14.50 for panties with motif, and $15 for the bralette tops. An opening buy is 18 pieces with no minimum for repeat orders. Pieces are sold in sets of 3 per color per style: 1 small, 1 medium, 1 large. Shipping is available starting with delivery September 1 thru March 2013. Knitty Kitty is based in Trinidad in northern California.
