Dyeing humble, minimalist yarns and knitting with them

Humble Knit produces humble, minimalist yarns inspired by nostalgia and the bittersweet memories of past emotions. Informed by her studies in Scotland, Naomi creates colours which references those unforgettable moments which have influenced her life, in the hopes of provoking those same feelings of connection and identity in each crafter who picks up a ball of yarn and a pair of needles. By taking the name "Humble", the maiden name of her granny who taught her to knit, Naomi hopes to encourage daily craft practice, sustainable consumption, slow craft, and the importance of mending and caring for our clothing.

Humble Knit produit avec humilité et minimalisme des fils qui s’inspirent de la nostalgie et de l’amertume des souvenirs d’émotions passées. Façonnée par ses études en Écosse, Naomi cree des couleurs qui font référence aux moments inoubliables qui ont marqué sa vie, dans l’espoir de susciter ces mêmes sentiments de connexion et d’identité chez chaque artisan qui prend en main une pelote de laine et une paire d’aiguilles. En adoptant le nom 'Humble', le nom de jeune fille de sa grand-mère, qui lui a appris à tricoter, Naomi souhaite encourager la pratique quotidienne de l’artisanat, la lenteur, l’importance de réparer nos textiles et la consommation durable.
