About Us

Hello and welcome to Sonya Hopkins.

For over 25 years, we’ve been draping our customers in heavenly, luxurious knitwear that feels simply beautiful against the skin. Our designs are not mass produced because we believe in superb quality and attention to the smallest detail. Instead, they are stylish contemporary classics, crafted to fit and flatter, so you step out in confident elegant style. 

Our Inspiration

From cooler summer days to chilled winter nights, there’s nothing like wrapping yourself in the purest knitwear that’s like a soft warm hug to the skin. We believe every person deserves to slip on an inspired design that makes them feel like a million dollars, yet is made to be worn every day. 

Our Yarns

For a modern designer, the word ‘yarn’ might seem a little old fashioned to you. But as true craftsmen, we continuously travel the globe to find the finest quality yarns and the most talented knitters, so you know you’re buying a piece with brilliant longevity. Using only pure, natural fibres, we select silk, cashmere, fine merino wool and silky mercerised cottons. We also blend our own gorgeous combinations to create luxurious mixtures you’ll love.

Our Colours

If you think contemporary classic knitwear is just black, navy and cream, you’re in for an absolute treat. We have hundreds of exquisite colours in many styles. So when you find the style and fit you love, you can fill your wardrobe with a myriad of your favourite, soft luxuries in stunning vibrant or pastel shades.  

Our Service

We want you to be really happy, and we love providing a personal shopping service. We’ll help you find the right shape for your body and match colours to skin tone. Email us or pop into our Paddington store and we’ll take care of you.

Our History

Sonya Hopkins introduced her first knitwear collection in 1995, opening her first dedicated knitwear boutique on Glenmore Road two years later. In 2004, to cope with the expanding team and clientele, the shop moved to William Street in the heart of Sydney’s Paddington.

Over the years, our attention to detail and quality has resulted in a strong and loyal following that sees clients from all corners of the globe travelling to our store to add pieces to their collections.
