nido welcomes Woolfolk yarn and patterns to the shop!
Woolfolk is inspired by Kristin Ford’s Danish heritage and her grandmother, Katherine Temple Woolfolk, who taught her how to knit at age 5. When the last name of “Woolfolk” run’s in the family, it might be destiny to design and create amazing yarn!
Woolfolk comes in three great weights: a chainette worsted, two fingering yarns including a marled, and a new bulky (arriving to nido shelves October 2015). This yarn is extremely soft, comparable to cashmere. With a micron count of 17.5, Woolfolk has the softness of cashmere with the wearability of merino.
More about that buttery merino. It comes from Ovis 21, a sustainable cooperative in Argentina’s Patagonian grasslands, who believe in responsible land management and the conservation of all that use the land. This wool is not only super soft, but has been sustainably curated from land to sheep to consumer. Kristin Ford also donates a portion of her proceeds back to Ovis 21.
Woolfolk’s patterns are modern, clean, and are compiled from some great designers from Melanie Berg to Bristol Ivy to creator of Woolfolk Kristin Ford, herself.
We love this luxuriously soft yarn, the beautifully designed patterns, and the company’s social and environmental responsibility!
