M.O.E post 13 – The Knitting Swede

Angelic Row

The Knitting Swede is a UK based business focusing on high quality yarns sourced from the British Isles and Ireland.

When sourcing my yarns I not only look at the quality but I am also careful to choose ethical British suppliers.

My yarns are hand-painted or hand-dyed by myself in my home. During the dyeing process, I try to minimize my impact on the environment whilst dyeing as well as neutralizing any leftover water.

I also design knitting patterns to compliment my yarns.
