Knit Collage's Wildflower yarn is handmade from strips of super soft, cotton voile fabric. The fabrics are all printed in traditional Indian paisley and flower designs. The yarn is a happy mix of old world India prints paired with modern colors. When the craftswomen we work with receive the fabric, they then cut it into strips and knot it together to make each skein. Wildflower yarn is perfect for warm weather projects or knitters with wool allergies. The fabric is lightweight, so even though it calls for a larger needle size, the end result is still light, airy, and quick to knit!
Knit Collage is run by sisters Amy and Jessie (originally from right outside Philly!). Their vibrant yarns are handspun, hand-dyed, and hand-carded. Some colorways have over 10 different fiber colors carded together to achieve the final result. This creates a beautiful melange look that is impossible to duplicate on machine. Each skein is unique. Knit Collage uses wool from non-museled Australian sheep and mohair from South Africa.
