Knitted Knockers are a special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can't be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast.
If you wish to donate a pair of knitted knockers, you can drop them off to our store or you can view the list of locations near you here.

to us, we recommend UltraPima yarn by Cascade yarns. In Canada this yarn is distributed through Estelle Yarns (they only take orders from retailers but their website has a list of shops that carry their yarn). Ladies love the soft satiny texture of this pima cotton, which we prefer but any cotton or baby weight yarn can also be used. Please make sure it is washable and contains no wool.
