Looking for some KNITSPIRATION to get your cast on?

Your knitting style is unique to you. We always recommend knitting a swatch first to ensure you achieve the correct gauge for your chosen pattern.

We do our best to give you an accurate snap of our beautiful fabric and yarn but we know (from experience) that screen displays can be misleading and nothing beats seeing and feeling it in person. This is why we offer samples for purchase, so you can feel confident in your choices.

Why I'm Better

Recycled Fibres are a great solution to reducing textile waste and creating a more circular fashion industry. Virgin cotton is one of the thirstiest and most chemical and labour intensive crops to grow. Recycled cotton is made using post-industrial and post-consumer cotton waste. Choosing recycled material helps extend the lifespan of the fibre beyond its original purpose and has the potential to help reduce water and energy consumption.
