Knitcraft & Knittery
We are delighted to welcome Knitcraft & Knittery to our Sisters Spotlight for March 2018. Based in beautiful Wynyard, Tasmania, Morgan Capestrain is the talented dyer behind this glorious range of hand dyed yarn.
Originally from Midwest United States, Morgan is a scientist by training but has found that nothing can compare to being her own boss and creating something magical.
Morgan's inspiration comes mostly from her nerdy side! She is a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and most of her designs draw inspiration from the clothing, architecture and settings of Peter Jackson's films and Alan Lee's artwork. Morgan mostly works in stunning earthy, deep colours, but sometimes can't ignore an exceptionally beautiful pastel. All of Morgan's colourways are named for people or memories that help connect her to home.
We're so excited to be able to share with you these gorgeous 100% sustainable Australian NewMerino wool yarns, including 2 exclusive colourways for Skein Sisters, named for Morgan's favourite places in Sydney - Sydney Harbour and the Coogee to Bondi Walk.
All Knitcraft & Knittery yarns come from farms committed to protecting the environment and maintaining sustainable practices. The fibres are rinsed in an all-natural eucalyptus wool wash, and disposable equipment used in the dying process is made from recycled materials.
