I’ve loved Wool and the Gang since they were introduced to me years ago. Their fresh, fun, and accessible approach to knitting is something a strive for with my own knits and attitude, so when they approached me about a guest article I jumped at the chance just in case I could be the one to introduce this fun company to you.
One Cozy, Sustainable Skein
Wool and the Gang is committed to bringing knitters wool harvested sustainably and ethically from Peru. Whether you are purchasing a kit, a finished piece of knitwear, or a skein of their beautifully dyed yarn, you know you are getting the highest quality yarn direct from their own sustainable source in Peru.
From their site: The ready-to-wear clothing is hand knitted by locals steeped in the skill and tradition. The knitting wool for the locals or for you, is provided by grazing sheep at altitudes conducive to a uniquely pure and effective product. You get wonderful colors, and silkiness without sacrificing the stout thermal quality that makes wool such a magical material. The treatment the sheep receive is based on a deep and rich connection of the ranchers with their herd. The sheep get individual names and harvesting is done by hand sheering with superior care taken to never to do harm. Not only is it the right way and the time-honored way, it is integral to creating an amazing quality wool for you.
Wool And The Gang
More than that, their knits are simple and cool. On their blog they share a lot of the inspiration behind their knits, shots from their dreamy photo shoots, and stories about visiting their knitters and spinners in Peru.
A Kit For You!
And even though I want to keep this kit SO BAD, I’m going to suck it up and give it away to one lucky blog reader!
Snood Dogg in Tweed Grey
Wool and the Gang’s Snood Dogg is a fantastically chunky snood that you are sure to wear every single day. And what an amazing time to get this kit! It will knit up quickly in the yarn and needles included in the kit, and you will be sorry when spring rolls around so you will have to stop wearing it!
