Nicole Leybourne. A kiwi, a fluffy animal enthusiast, a romantic, a toast lover, a tea drinker, a curious soul, a knitter; the Knitter.
The demand for Nicoles happy knits quickly outgrew her small team of hand knitters in New Zealand. Each knit is now brought to life somewhere in between the beautiful lands on New Zealand and the magic of Peru, where Nicole's team continues to evolve and grow. Using soft mohair yarns from New Zealand, fluffy alpaca and sheep wool sourced from the Peruvian Highlands; Nicole's belief in supporting small communities, ethical labour and a sustainable way of life, is of utmost importance.
Knitted together in homes, and not in overcrowded factories, by humble hands and using century old-methods. Nicole's knits are stitched together in a world where fairy dust and magic are real.
Yarns gathered from local, family run farms where mulseing is not practiced , are not natural and biodegradable.
The fibres are combed, spun and coloured using low impact dyes, certified by Oeko Tex and REACH.
