I love the Waldorf philosophy which encourages handiwork by children, beginning at a young age, to help not only with fine motor skills, but patience, attention to detail and the satisfaction and confidence found in creating something.

Add the warmth of wood and wool in the hand...

A Knitting Nancy is also known as a Knitting Knobby or cork knitter and is used for the ancient technique of french or spool knitting.

You can use wool, raffia, cotton, or pretty much anything that comes in strings! Simple, rhythmic wrapping and lifting (with a needle or crochet hook) creates long cords of knit for jewelry, hairbands, snakes, finger puppets (the knitting process creates a tube), coaster and whatever else you child can dream up.

A great activity for travel!

This listing is for the Knitting Nancy pictured (rainbow, daisy on her chest). She is made of solid oak and stands approximately 5" tall. The nails on top are deeply seated to stay in place and stand taller than some other tools as this is intended for a child's use and shorter pegs mean losing more stitches!

We will include a plastic (child-safe) needle. The Nancy and the needle will come in a drawstring muslin bag for carrying.
Instructions included.

Handpainted and sealed with water based, non-toxic products.
Suitable for children 4+.

Frequently asked questions about BeneathTheRowanTree

Sizes are described for each item. If you are purchasing for a specific use or space, please be sure to measure before ordering. As each silk piece is dyed custom for you, returns and exchanges are not generally made for pieces that are their described dimensions.
Every silk item will arrive with a postcard bearing detailed information about the item and its care. Generally, treat silk like your own hair (a protein fiber)~ wash gently in warm to cool water with a gentle shampoo or dish soap and hang to dry. Avoid laundry detergent. Direct sunlight (ie on a clothesline) can quickly damage silk. Tumble dry low for a brief time, best of all~ press with a warm iron while damp.
