Tricoterie

colouring your fantasies

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Be cool, be outrageous, be individual, be creative, but above all be RESPONSIBLE.

I have recently turned my hand to making masks because I feel vulnerable when people don't wear them. I was not happy with many of the masks I have seen so used the best advice I could find to modify the AFNOR design which is government approved in FRANCE. I am still a dyer but am turning my creativity in another direction for a while.

I am a serendipitous dyer so batches are small and non repeatable. I practice 'intentional dyeing' and like to pre-visualise how yarns will look knitted up. I have been dyeing for more than 20 years and have tried most things in that time. For instance I was dyeing gradient stripes in 2011 long before they became popular. Most of my inspiration comes from the fantasy books (and films) I love.

I am also a pattern designer and hope to be producing knitting kits in the near future.

You may have been directed here from my new website www.tricoterie.com which will be under construction soon, please check back there periodically.

As someone with multiple risk factors am not going to feel safe leaving my home unless everyone is wearing a mask. I am hoping that providing well made, quality masks with a sense of individuality will encourage mask wearing.

I live in France where they take health seriously so obviously there are governmental guidelines on mask construction for general use. I have done my research and added some useful modifications and added some little extras which I hope will make your mask more comfortable.

These masks are made with care by someone with a vested interest in their quality.
