About TinkerCreekHandknits

Sales 798
On Etsy since 2016

I design hats, gloves and headbands knit from all-wool and wool/acrylic blend fibers.

Hello! I learned to knit 20 years ago and I'm in love with the craft, and with natural fibers, especially wool. There is nothing like wool for keeping you warm and dry in all kinds of weather.

When I began to have children, I noticed that few clothing stores carried clothes and accessories for kids that were made of wool. So, I began designing handknits and writing my own knitting patterns to make childrens' hats, gloves, mittens and other accessories made from wool. This became my passion, especially when my children actually liked the products and wanted to wear them!

Now, I design wool acrylic/wool blend accessories for both kids and adults. I love the challenge of creating original designs that are classic yet contemporary for kids, tweens, teens and adults. I design and knit most of the items in my shop.

When you choose to buy a product made from natural fibers, you're choosing to support a sustainable, environmentally-friendly industry. If you buy a handknit from me, you are also choosing to support local handmade sellers right here in the United States. And for that, I thank you! I hope you enjoy looking around my shop, and please contact me with any questions or comments you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
