This week's slow fashion October theme is known, which means focusing on sustainable/traceable resources and products.
I'm taking this opportunity to share some of my favorite yarns to knit with and small sewing pattern designers. These are the sources and materials I didn't know existed a couple of years ago, and discovering them literally opened up a whole new creative world for me:
Brooklyn Tweed | Beautiful U.S. grown, processed and dyed wool
Quince + Co. | A wonderful and affordable range of natural fibers all produced in the U.S.
The Fibre Co. | Artisan yarns in a range of fiber combinations
Stonehedge Fiber Mill - Shepherd's Wool | Wonderfully soft wool produced in Michigan
Indie Sewing Pattern Designers:
Hopefully there's some new discoveries in this list for you - I can personally vouch for almost all of these sources since I've had a chance to use most of them in my own making!
