Melbourne winter nights mean howling wind, frosty temperatures and the flimsy protection of our traditionally-terribly-insulated houses. Luckily we have our Hotties to cuddle up with and drive away the winter blues.
Hot water bottles that is.
Treat yourself to a truly Melbourne winter with one of Otto and Spike's 'Hotties' - Premium Australian Lambswool hot water bottle covers. They're the most loyal and dependable Hottie you will ever have.
Otto and Spike make all of their knitwear from a small factory in East Brunswick. A true Aussie-battler story, the Otto and Spike label was born when a 50-year-old East Brunswick textile producer realised that they could no longer compete with cheap offshore competitors. Their response? To cut out the middle-man, become their own customer, and design and produce products for their own brand-new label!
Otto and Spike make a super amazing 100% Aussie product using new and original machinery, and often repurpose high-quality Australian yarns - which would otherwise be discarded as surplus - to make their distinctive, super-quality knitwear. Melbournalia stocks a range of Otto and Spike products including socks, blankets, hats and scarves.
To purchase a Hottie is to take home a piece of honest-to-goodness Melbourne history, as well as to support Australia's small-but-still-thriving manufacturing industry!
