I’m a yarn addict and as a textile designer I have extra sensitivity to fibers and the way they feel in hand.
The Granny Kit cotton collection started at the point where I was looking for beautiful, nice handle yarns for my crochet ideas.
You know when you have an idea in mind and you think ‘what yarn will be the best here?’ so for me, somehow, it always ended up with cotton.Just the thought that one of my Minions will fall asleep on the couch with his little cheek on the crocheted pillow or on the granny blanket – of course I choose cotton.
Cotton feels like home to me, more than any other fiber.
Granny Kit cotton is a non stop growing collection with so many beautiful shades and colours. I always look for the next new shade to pop it up and never have enough of them.
I can struggle months with lab dyes and fine tuning a colour choice, before I say yes for a new colour.
It has to be fresh and vibrant by itself and to coordinate within the entire collection.
So once I put a new colour into the collection I print a new colour card as the one you see here, where you can view all the colours together.
With it’s soft handle and slight sheen, the Granny Kit cotton is just a perfect yarn for home textiles, baby clothing, soft animals, accessorise and any other craft project you choose to work on.
