Create your own knitwear

Make your own handmade fashions using these kits

For many years, we have all appreciated goods that are handmade. This site features many items that are created by artisans or craftspeople and which are available to buy online. But even they can’t compare with goods that you’ve made yourself.

Creating your own stylish fashions – whether for yourself or for a very special gift – has a wonderful pleasure, bringing the amazing sense of creation and satisfaction of knowing that you have made a beautiful object that is likely to become a family treasure.

Taking time away from the screens that we peer at for so much of our lives to create beauty is so very worth it and you and your friends and family will have an object of beauty that is made with the ultimate care. Using these kits, you’ll have the yarn and the patterns that will enable you to create your own unique garments and accessories.

The yarns used are of the most amazing quality – the garment you see in the large image below, for example,  uses 100% extrafine merino wool that is hand-dyed and spun by women working with the World Fair Trade Organization. Most garments and accessories are available in a wide range of colors. Note that the site also runs online classes to help you refine (or even start) your knitting skills.
