The business started manufacturing nearly 60 years ago in a small town called Norsewood in Central Hawkes Bay. Norsewood is where the factory is still located, in the heart of the town, and from the company's inception its people and location have shaped the development of our products and brands. Originally called Norsewear and then for a time called Kiwi Sock Company, the business is now named Norsewood Knitwear Limited and continues to Manufacturer all socks, gloves, beanies and scarfs on the Norsewood site.
The company has made significant investment in technology and equipment over recent years with a total of 50 Knitting Machines now operating. Furthermore our products are only made from natural fibres, as wool absorbs up to 30% of its weight in moisture but still has excellent insulating properties- keeping you warm and dry in varying conditions.
