It's a groovy kind of love
we feel for Knit collage Collage Yarns!
Knit Collage began when founder Amy Small fell in love with hand spinning long ago. From that time on, creating a business that meshed with her creative passion became an obsession. The company began when on the advice of a yarn store owner, Amy decided to take her first yarn collection to an industry tradeshow. The yarns were snapped up by some of the best yarn retailers around the world and instantly Knit Collage was born.
Amy is inspired by the places she travels, especially India & Hong Kong where she lived, and constantly collects things that usually become incorporated in her yarns. This could be hand-printed fabrics from Jaipur or shimmering paisley trims found on Indian wedding garb. Along with trims and textiles, Amy loves fiber and texture and is always challenging herself to come up with new colors and spinning techniques.
The Knit Collage team also includes a handful of pattern designers that truly bring the yarn to life and make it all wearable! Be sure to visit the Knit Collage website to see the amazing work of Susan Sheby, Danielle Shields, Tori Kendrew, Margaux Hufnagel & Cheryl Kubat.
