I’m absolutely delighted to be stocking Knitted Knockers at Ekko Therapies for any woman who has undergone a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or similar procedures. Knitted Knockers are handmade. They are super soft, comfortable, absolutely gorgeous to touch, and, when placed in a regular bra, take the shape and feel of a real breast.
And they are totally free courtesy of the wonderful ladies from Knitted Knockers Ireland. who volunteer their time to knit and crotchet each knocker – one woman for another.
If you or someone you know would like to pick up a pair and try them, please get in touch.
