Design is a pleasure ~ but working IN the knit factories is our greatest inspiration ~ seeing the stitches, yarns & colours come to life!
In January we hit the highways to our factories in Victoria with early 5am starts to beat the traffic – but not the knitters – the machines are running before dawn. Being really prepared with yarns & colours is a must, & our work sheets & wish lists were ready to roll.
But manufacturing…knitting especially…is not always smooth sailing. Whilst our 4gg ‘Mad Max’ was knitting like a dream, the 5gg was just not keen to ‘change tack’ – literally – so down-time was a little harrowing. Meanwhile the focus was on the 12gg – to create new superfine styles in extrafine merino wool – & we are proud to say they will be in stores very soon.
We love our knitters, their staff & the machinery — and remain dedicated to our cause & passion — to support & encourage our local knit industry! . Please join us in our quest.
