About

I have been knitting since I was a little child. My mom couldn’t knit; she never learned how. She was always amazed to see what I could do and how I could know something that no one had taught me. Now I'm going back to my early passion and creating this new collection of cowls and shawls.

My passion for cowls comes from the eighties when I had a black one. I've been wearing it for so many years, every winter, around my neck and on my head when it was too cold and my ears were freezing, or when it was raining (I never carry an umbrella). About 3 years ago, I started to see cowls come back around, and you can imagine my joy to be able to go back to such a useful item. So I started knitting...and now also opened a shop on Etsy for you to buy them.

About 3 years ago, I started to see cowls come back around, and you can imagine my joy to be able to go back to such a useful item. So I started knitting...and now also opened a shop on Etsy for you to buy them.

Please notice that I use very precious yarn like alpaca, merino wool, camel, and cashmere. Some yarns have acrylic content, but never more than 20% or, in some special cases 40%, but they look so beautiful I cannot renounce them!

For this reason my prices are higher, compared to the average you can find on Etsy, but the quality it is totally different. Most of the yarn I use comes from Italy, some are hand spun. I'm really excited about my cashmere, which is so soft and warm. So please, consider the materials I use when you compare my prices with others. Most of the very beautiful cowls I've seen on Etsy are made of 80% acrylic and 20% wool...so much different.

Have a great, great life full of light and joy.
