    The #Knitwell capsule collection is a collaboration between Hong Kong based KPC Yarn and extreme knitter and textile artist, Jacqui Fink.

    Combining a shared passion for sustainable solutions while working with natural fibres and high-quality yarns, #Knitwell comprises a collection of luxurious yarns and hand-knit patterns which combine an understated beauty with subtle, unconventional design elements.

    “I wanted these knits to have all the appeal of a luxurious piece of clothing bought from a high-end store but well within the capability of a broad spectrum of knitting capabilities”, says Jacqui.

    The yarns themselves are sustainable and derived through patented technology held by KPC. Cashmere and cotton yarns are re-spun from three sources (all pre-consumer i.e. not used) and include waste fibres from yarn manufacture, yarns that have not sold and garments that are returned from retail. Instead of landfill, through KPC’s rigorous and environmentally responsible processes, they are made into new luxury handknitting yarns.
    The #Knitwell collection, which includes Australian merino wool, embodies our desire to create yarns and textiles that support the ethical treatment of animals, are environmentally friendly, and follow responsible protocols and sustainable practices.

    “It was important for me to solve a problem with this collaboration. The light footprint of these yarns, their re-use and sustainability ties in with my philosophy around making fashion a circular process. Yes minimising waste, but also delivering the highest quality of product”, says Jacqui, “Hence our hashtag #ourchoicesmatter”.

    #Knitwell for the benefit of our animals, our environment and our wellbeing

    The #Knitwell collection is the result of a collaboration between many talented women across a range of creative disciplines. Devoted to celebrating the contributions of these inspiring multi-taskers Jacqui has acknowledged them by naming a design after each.
