Knitted Knockers originated in America as a comfortable knitted alternative prosthetic option, for women who have survived cancer ... and have the scars to prove it!

Oakley Stitchers have affiliated with Knitted Knockers.org in the US to provide these beautifully made knockers free of charge to those needing them within the U.K.
If you are not in the UK please visit www.Knittedknockers.org to find knitters closest to you, in your specific country.
 

Our Day2Day knockers are here to provide you with the confidence, to feel like you again. 

They are made from 100% cotton to give them a soft luxurious feel against sensitive skin.

As each lady will have had a different experience during their journey to date and no person is ever the same they are made, just for you. 

As such, neither are our knockers. Each set are unique and will adjust to fit you as you would like them to.

They are stuffed with a hypoallergenic stuffing and with your help, will contour to your body perfectly. Allowing you to confidently move on with your life again.

Our Aqua-knockers

When you are ready to brave the water....

These specific knockers are designed to be worn in water.

They are make from an acrylic wool, which copes with being wet better than wool or Cotton. they are stuffed with a netting to prevent them becoming waterlogged , making them easier to swim in and get dry.

Please always talk to your medical team in the first instance as they will be able to give you local support an provide the best personal support and guidance tailor made for you, as they know your individual circumstances far better than we do.

We hope that you find the following organisations helpful. please let us know if we have missed anyone you have found to be amazing! lets give them a shout out and 

I was having problems with my hospital prosthetic (stuck up with tape in places😢) and getting a new one so I decided to try one and have never regretted it. I had my mastectomy in 1997 so am very fortunate. You can reassure ladies there is life after a mastectomy and at nearly 87 I am grateful. It is so good there is more support now.

Other support items that we provide.

Pressure relief pillows
We have set out to create a multipurpose item to help with the challenges of post surgeries such as heart, mastectomy or any other procedure where it may prove useful. 
Often post-surgery, it is helpful to have protection of some kind, to alleviate pressure on the wound while it heals, a relief from additional pressures (eg seatbelts) or as a support/ aid memoir, while remobilising and rehabilitating.

We have tried to create a dual-purpose item that can be future proof and not only provide protection during recovery but also a useful support for a phone, book or I-pad while in hospital / healing.. and beyond. 

Please contact us if one of these would help with your recovery.
 

 Drain bags
 for  surgical wards and individuals

On occasion post surgery, a drain is inserted to remove any build up of fluids. Our drain bags provide a little discretion and a comfortable way to Support the drain bag itself while its in place.

Again, if you feel these could help, please get in touch.

Chemo hats

Like the knockers these are made with 100% cotton yarn to ensure that they are as soft and comfortable as possible on your head, especially if hair is reducing or your head is particularly sensitive.

if you feel that any of the items above would be helpful to you. Please contact us on:

Hi All

I got the fab knockers few days back. Thankyou soooo much. 

They are great. 

Scary at first as they looked Very big, but as you said I did remove some of the stuffing to get them to fit me better. 

Please pass on my thanks if u can to Barbara and Caroline who made them.   

Much appreciated

I love my Aquaknockers

Dear Oakley Stitchers,

I have just received my aqua knockers.. they are absolutely amazing! Very comfortable. 

Thank you so much.  The information inside was perfect. I opened it,  well,my little boy actually helped open it! 

(He loves opening the post with me!) And everything  fell out.

 The info leaflet I've found today for my aqua knockers is perfect!

Thank you so much again.

Steph 

They fit really nicely.

HI Stitchers

 

Thank you so much. It (the KK) arrived on Saturday and you were right, it was huge!! But I’ve taken lots of the filling out and it’s now fitting really nicely. It’s actually a bit strange to be evenly matched again after such a long time; I think it will take a while to get used to it. But I'm very happy, and grateful for your support. Thank you.

Very best wishes

Anyway, thank you so so much

My new Knockers will improve my body image.

 All you kind caring stitchers 

Thank you for my knitted knockers which will improve my body image considerably. At the very least my belly will look smaller now my chest looks bigger. All joking aside I was very moved by your parcel of love and good wishes.

To be the recipient of such generosity of spirit moved me and I will be grateful to all you lovely ladies especially you Caroline.

Thank you so much,      

   

PERFECT!

 Dear Stitchers,

My knocker arrived today and its perfect. Thank you ever so much x  

Chris 

So emotional receiving my knockers

 Hello Caroline and you lovely ladies.

I gave my friend, your lovely knitted knocker. To say she was overwhelmed is an understatement. She was very emotional and extremely grateful for your generous gift. 

I haven't seen her since I gave her the booby due to the weather, but she has worn it in her home.

Thank you so much to all you lovely ladies.
