Wildflower is handspun from strips of lightweight cotton voile fabric. The fabrics are all block printed by hand in an area of Jaipur, India that is known for this unique technique. By supporting these age-old Indian printing practices, we hope to keep this craft thriving.
When craftswomen we work with receive the fabric, they then cut it into strips and knot it together to make each skein. To learn more about the women who spin our yarns, visit our about us page here: http://knitcollage.com/pages/meet-the-spinners
Wildflower is a soft cotton yarn that has beautiful stitch definition. We especially love it knit on large (size 19 or 35 needles) to create an open fishnet-y stitch.
