The Amateur Weather Observers is a British knitwear brand. The name stems from our values: British makers and sustainably sourced British yarns are at the core of the brand. British people love to talk about the weather; TAWO’s collections seek inspiration from the UK’s erratic climate and diverse landscapes.

Each garment is knitted by hand in the United Kingdom by Laura, the founder, and a team of knitters passionate about rejuvenating the craft.

2. In The Middle of Nowhere

In The Middle of Nowhere / 2022

"In The Middle of Nowhere" is an ode to the British Suburban landscape. Featuring classic shapes, new stand-out intarsia pieces, decorative details, and retro inspired patterns - from the cul-de-sac, to royal doulton ceramics, and buses that never show up - the Autumn/ Winter collection takes inspiration from growing up in the non-places of British Suburbia. The new collection of photographs, taken in the street Laura grew up in, in an old pit village called Langley Moor on the outskirts of Durham city, features old school friends, her Dad, and Daisy the goldendoodle.
