Knit Collage yarns are vibrant handspun creations that reflect the company's happy approach to the world. Bits of ribbons, sequins, or flower appliqués are spun together with brightly coloured wool, mohair and glittering Angelina fibres. They love natural fibres and primarily use wool and mohair in the yarns. Wool fibres are sourced from Australia where they choose the best quality available from non-museled sheep. The mohair comes all the way from South Africa, where there is a rich history of gorgeous mohair fibres. In some of these magical yarns they use a small amount of sparkly fibres called Angelina, made from polyester.
The spinning process is enormously time intensive. To spin one skein of yarn it takes the spinner around 2 or more hours. On top of the spinning, all of the fibres are hand dyed and hand carded. Some colourways have over 10 different fibres colours carded together to achieve the final result. This creates a beautiful melange look that is impossible to duplicate on a machine. Even though the raw material are the same, no two skeins are completely alike because of the intense hand mad process that goes into each and every skein. Knit Collage yarns are guaranteed to make you smile!
