Really lovely. Just the right light texture & relaxed look for a hand-knitted top. Wished had discovered this gem of a store sooner.

This sweater is nicer than I imagined it would be when I ordered it, if that is even possible. Thanks, Connie!

About

Artisan Knits from Luxurious Natural Fibers

Originally from northwestern Washington state where I learned to knit in my teens, I now find myself on a small ranch in the rural highlands of central Mexico, a beautiful, tranquil place to inspire my knitting.

I’ve found that whatever I am doing, it seems to involve creating a sense of harmony, balance and beauty. My aesthetic can be described as pure, essential, minimal and classic. I like to keep things simple and uncluttered. I use only natural fiber yarns and I like to let their beauty stand out. It is always the yarn that inspires my designs.

I believe in quality over quantity, especially when it comes to fashion. I prefer to have a few very well-made, classic pieces in my closet than have it crowded with the latest fashions that were hurried to market and that will be out of style next year. I’m a strong advocate of the emerging Slow Fashion movement, and goods that are handmade in small quantities. To me, this insures that an item was made with conscious intention, attention, and care for good craftsmanship. These are the qualities that go into all my knits. I want the purchaser of my work to feel they are buying something to be valued and cared for. I also hope my pieces will make the wearer feel valued and cared for as well.

Payment
I accept all forms of payment shown above.
Shipping
I ship orders within 1-5 days of receipt of payment. Packages are sent by via MexPost and are said to arrive within 10 days to 2 weeks, but it sometimes takes up to 3 weeks, due to delays at Customs. MexPost is very reliable, your package will arrive, but please be patient. I register all packages for delivery receipt and they can be tracked on the USPS website.

I can also ship FedEx or DHL if you are in a hurry, but it will cost considerably more. Please contact me if you are interested in this service and I can give you a price.

International buyers are responsible for any and all duties, taxes, and customs fees that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
I strive to give very complete, detailed information about each item so the purchaser can make an informed choice and a return is not necessary. Should you feel you need to return an item, please contact me first to get information about shipping address and packaging for Mexico.
Additional policies and FAQs
REGARDING COUPON CODES: Coupon codes cannot be combined and do not apply to sale items.

I make every effort to display item colors as closely as possible to true life, and they are on my monitor, but not all monitors are calibrated the same, and, in fact, just changing the angle of the screen can affect color. So, while in all likelihood what you receive will be just what you were expecting, please keep this information in mind when ordering.
