The 100% wool yarn is soft and warm and creates a fabric that is thick but not too bulky. My yarn is excellent for colorwork, cables, and textured stitches called for in our vintage knitting patterns. It is a great every-day wool that will keep you warm and cozy all year and last for many seasons.

About CampKitschyKnits

Sales 28,294
On Etsy since 2012

Everything is better with a sweater!

Camp Kitschy Knits began with a simple idea, to share my love of sweaters and other knits made from vintage knitting patterns with the world. It has grown from an idea (and an expensive ebay habit) into a fun and challenging adventure where I have learned that I am not the only lover of those fun and quirky sweaters! Hooray!

My love of sweaters goes way back. I rocked my "Hey Diddle Cat and the Fiddle" sweater through most of middle school. It was the 80's and it was perfectly acceptable (at least to me) to wear an oversized sweater with a big black cat jumping over the moon. Man did I love that sweater! Sadly the 80's gave way to the 90's and the big graphic sweater trend moved on....

Fast forward to the mid-2000's and I found myself working in product development for a big company designing and producing crystal giftware....yawn. While I loved designing and making products, I longed to work for myself and use my skills to create a socially responsible products that I loved. I developed my business plan during my commute to and from work. Finally in 2004 I took the plunge! I flew to Ecuador and began working with a group of professional knitters. I worked with them for several weeks to design our collection.

We will celebrate our tenth year of working together in 2014. That is a tremendous milestone for us. Along the way we have forged a friendship and a commitment that is second to none. I travel to Ecuador 3-4 times a year so we can work together. I also spend most mornings and some evenings on the phone with my knitters. My job isn't a whole lot different than it was working for the crystal company - except the yawn factor... I haven't had a boring day of work since 2004! There is no time for yawning when you are the Camp Director!

I believe that a quality product begins with quality materials, and ends with quality craftsmanship.

Everything item in the Camp Kitschy Knits collection has been hand knitted using the finest quality wool yarns.

The 100% wool yarn is soft and warm and creates a fabric that is thick but not too bulky. I have a huge palate of colors to work with and choose colors that would closely resemble the colors the knitters would have used in the past. It is a great every-day wool that will keep you warm and cozy all year and last for many seasons.

Everything for sale at Camp Kitschy Knits has been knitted the old fashion way; by hand, on needles. There is something so magical about beginning with a ball of yarn and ending with a sweater (or a hat, or mittens, or whatever!). Stitch by stitch, it is an amazingly zen experience requiring both patience and skill.

****** VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NON-USA CUSTOMERS******
We ship from the United States of America. We send international orders through the United States Postal Service (USPS), via First Class Mail International or Priority Mail International (depending on order value and overall package weight).

You will receive a customs form number that acts as a tracking number for your package through the USPS website. That customs tracking number typically begins with LZ followed by a series of numbers, ending in US (for example LZ99999999US). Your package will be trackable on the USPS website until it leaves the USA, which is usually in New York. https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction_input Once the package leaves the USA it is no longer trackable on the USPS website.

Your package has to go through customs and immigration in your country, this is where your government checks all international packages to ensure that they can be legally imported, and assess with any taxes that you have to pay for importing goods into your country. This process can take a day or several days depending on the country.

You should use the tracking/customs form number on your local postal website to follow and track your package. Once the package is accepted into your country by customs it should be trackable in your country.

Taxes and customs fees are charged by YOUR government to pay for services within YOUR country. We have no knowledge of the fees charged, nor do we receive any benefit from them. Those fees must be paid by you before you receive your package.

In our experience, not all customers receive word that their package is being held for payment by their local post office. It is, however, your responsibility to track and follow your package within your own country. If you are unable to track it, we recommend that you visit your local post office with the tracking/customs form number we provide you within a few days of your shipping notification to receive advice of how to receive your package.

Once we provided the tracking number to you, it is your responsibility to work with your local postal system to receive your package. Packages that are not picked up may be returned to us in the United States. If your package is returned to us for failure to pick up, or failure to pay the taxes, we will offer to reship your package for a fee. You will be required to pay to reship your package regardless of whether or not your local postal service notified you or not.
