Knitted and Stitched
A Premier Knitting and Craft Shop
At Knitted and Stitched we love knitting, sewing and all types of arts and crafts, which is one of the reasons why we decided to create this ecommerce website.
This is a new adventure for us, but we wanted to provide an ecommerce website that is committed to working with environmentally conscious local businesses. Through this collaboration we hope to raise the profile of wool as a natural sustainable fibre. Sheep and alpaca wool is essentially the perfect renewable resource and is biodegradable.
However, many yarns contain acrylic. The one aspect of acrylic fibre is that it will always have an attractively low price. However, acrylic is extremely harmful to the environment as it is plastic, meaning it will take decades to completely break down. The production of acrylonitrile (the main compound used in acrylic yarns) uses significant amounts of fossil fuels, majorly contributing to climate change and global warming.
Therefore, we have sourced and continue to source, UK hand knitting companies to ensure our customers only receive the best ACRYLIC FREE yarn!
Coming soon... Online tutorials, free pattern downloads and blogs on all aspects of hand knitting, crocheting and crafting in general!
Thank you and keep on knitting!
