Crafting a more caring world is our passion and focus.
Yes, we are unapologetic idealists… and also practical: quality, authenticity, good service, and feedback from our customers are the pillars we build on since we started back in 2001 in Peru.
Today we are an independent family operated small business. We are based in Sarasota, Florida, a place that strategically allows us to be close to the source of our products in Peru and our customers in North America.
We carefully select each of our yarns to ensure they meet the highest standards and bring you a uniquely enjoyable experience.
We are makers and creators and since we started our journey we wanted to be involved with meaningful products that make a difference for the better in people’s lives. That is totally non-negotiable.
We get continuous inspiration from knowing that our yarns and your labor of love combine in the most fun, beautiful, shareable, and caring garments.
We are a creative team at the core, and we are grateful for having the opportunity to empower other creatives and makers to make their dream projects tangible.
Claudia is our knitter-crocheter in chief and supervises operations and selection and the development of yarns and colors.
Daniel is our resident photographer and is also in charge of strategy and growth.
We lead a team of amazing people with every member dedicated to our principles as much as we are. We will not have it any other way.
