New! Yarns from Knitting for Olive.

Posting date: 24 October 2022

We’re delighted to start carrying some beautiful new yarns from Knitting for Olive,  a small, mother-and-daughter Danish yarn company.  They are knitters and knitwear designers first, so their yarns come from their own love of high-quality, natural fibres that are environmentally friendly, cruelty-free, and easy to work with.

Knitting for Olive Merino is produced from Patagonian merino, where sheep are not subjected to mulesing. Pure Silk is spun from pure bourette silk (raw silk) produced from silk fibers collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. Both yarns are spun and dyed in Italy using environmentally safe practices, and the finished yarns are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified, meaning that they are free from any harmful chemicals.

These are lovely yarns to work with. The quality of the yarn and beauty of the colours elevate simple designs to elegance and luxury.  We can’t wait to see what wonderful things our customers will make with these new yarns.
