Favourite Fair Fashion Looks from TRAVEL

Just a little over a month ago, we published TRAVEL: A Book for Makers, Adventurers and Sustainablists. It is certainly no exaggeration to say that this eBook is something I have been dreaming about for the longest time.

Dedicated to all things traveling, making and leading a happy, fulfilling life without missing out on the fun while at the same time treating the world we live in with respect, mindfulness and other creatures and future generations in mind, TRAVEL captures some of the many ways of being more sustainable when traveling and making.

All products in the book have been made ethically and sustainably, and there are many fair fashion pieces we absolutely adore. Now without further ado, here are some of my personal favourite styles from the book!

Reflecting on my why, I soon found the deep desire to contribute to a more sustainable, fair and eco-friendly way of everyday living within me, and over time, I’ve started featuring content with a more holistic view on sustainability, covering and connecting a range of aspects in addition to sustainable making.

About: Yllep's Ball Winder

About: Yllep's Ball Winder

Are you a knitter? Do you love buying yarn in hanks? Then you need to know about Yllep's ball winder! If you ever thought about buying a ball winder and did some research on what's on the market, you very likely found a plethora of plastic winders, and none or very few made from natural materials. Before I got mine (a lovely gift from my parents – thanks, Mama & Papa!), I contemplated buying a ball winder for the longest time and just couldn't really bring myself to invite a plastic one into our home and my making space. When I stumbled upon Yllep's website during my research and found out that she and her husband ...

How to swatch in the Round

How to swatch in the Round

Have you ever noticed that your (row) gauge is different when you work in the round? It is for most knitters, even if just slightly, and that's mainly because our tension varies between knit and purl stitches. If you're, for instance, making a stockinette stitch sweater with the front and back knit flat and the sleeves knit in the round, it is very likely that your row gauge for the sleeves will be different from the front and back. And the same goes for swatching! So when you're swatching for a new project (and you're always swatching, right?), it's recommended, and I dare say important, to always swatch the way the project is worked ...
