Why natural fibers?

When Karen first learned to knit, she didn’t realize that nearly all the yarns at the big box stores were acrylic – that’s right plastic.

While she enjoyed knitting, she didn’t really become passionate about it until she was introduced to natural fibers – hand-dyed merino, hand-spun wool, and later locally farmed wool, llama, and alpaca. The sustainability. The natural beauty. The marked improvement in comfort, workability and fit. The farmers who know their animals by name and personality. The dyers who turn skeins of yarn into their canvas to create beautiful works of art.

For all these reasons and more, we use natural fibers to bring you loving crafted sustainable clothing & accessories, slow fashion & slow textiles.
