Choose handmade for the Holidays

The Holiday season is upon us and so is the big "gift dilemma". Choosing the right gift for your loved one can be difficult, particularly when you're shopping for somebody who seems to have absolutely everything already! We spend so much time cruising the stores and navigating the web looking for the perfect gift. Not too expensive, thoughful enough, one of a kind. We go crazy sometimes to find something that says "I thought of you. I know you, and I know exactly what you like". 

Consider handmade. Whether you choose a unique pottery from a local artist, or put together a basket of homemade goodies picked at the farmers market or go for a beautiful one of a kind knitted scarf, you are choosing a gift with a story behind. A gift that represents the people behind it, their effort, their time and their unique skills. You are choosing a one of a kind, personal, crafted with love gift and you are telling your loved one they are worth all that.

  

Cison Neck Warmer

Another versatile neck warmer that you can shape in many ways by simply sliding the three wood buttons anywhere through the open lace edge. Knitted with a 100% extrafine Merino wool yarn in a beautiful walnut color. It makes a very warm and soft accessory for the Winter, and a perfect gift for a loved one!

Mantova Neck Warmer

Another neck warmer on the shelves. For this piece I choose a special yarn (60% Merino Wool, 20% Alpaca and 20% Silk) from the Mirasol Yarn Collection, Peru. The Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection. Peru's heritage and culture of textile artistry is rich and ancient. The Mirasol Yarn Collection includes yarns made from the animals bred by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands.

Ravenna Chunky Scarf

Get cozy with this over-sized, incredibly soft, chunky infinity scarf is perfect for keeping you warm and stylish all Winter. I knitted this scarf using a 100% Blue Face Leicester wool in an open lace pattern. This stitch creates a visible texture and a wonderful drape. The scarf can be worn open and long, or wrapped twice around the neck for extra warmth.

Bassano Neck Warmer

This piece was knitted in two days, I just couldn't put it down. I just love the warm and soft feeling that only a 100% merino wool can give you. The perfect finishing touch to complement this natural hand-dyed yarn are the three handmade wooden buttons, that allow you to shape it in many ways.

Local and Natural

If you like to shop at farmers markets, you probably have a pretty good sense of what and who is behind the food you are purchasing. You are aware of the importance of local, natural and organic food and the positive impact it has on your health. But how many of us know much about the fabrics we wear everyday or the people involved in the making? Fiber is a significant but sometimes overlooked product of agriculture in America.

The US imports about 95% of our clothing from overseas, the majority of which is manufactured in China, where human rights abuses are very common. The most commonly used fibers are polyester and nylon, which are derived from petroleum and processed and dyed using synthetic, often toxic chemicals, such as copper, nickel, and cobalt. Unfortunately, a very small percentage of people is aware of this and an even smaller percentage of people seem to care. 

This is why I shop local and natural. Every skein of yarn I purchase and every scarf I knit tell a story that I’m proud of, that I connect with and that I feel is ethical.
