For well over a century, dressmakers have had access to a body of techniques that allow them to create garments of uncommon refinement, detail and craftsmanship. In the hands of the truly adept, the couture method elevates dressmaking to an art form. We believe that knitters deserve a similar option. We have devoted more than two decades to developing a couture method for handknitting and to making this method accessible to all who want to take their handknits from ordinary to extraordinary.
We are passionate about enabling knitters to create the most finely crafted garments possible and strive to offer the most luxurious materials available for handknitting. Our yarn is designed to produce fabrics with characteristics unprecedented in handknits; our patterns place a defining emphasis on construction and finishing; our workshops and publications are dedicated to teaching the skills and techniques of a couture method for handknitting.
Bespoke. Four yarns made from natural fibers of unsurpassed quality dyed in a consistent color palette. Handknitting weights are created by building a strand with multiple singles of the same yarn or by mixing different yarns in the same strand. Bespoke is custom prepared for each order.SHOP YARN
