The label of The Knitwit Stable
With our own brand, The Knitwit Label, we make sweaters, cardigans, shawls and hats from wool based on our own animals. With our label we put words into action: we not only provide insight into how you can make a transparent, sustainable product from wool, but we also show it. In addition to our own wool, we also collect sheep, alpaca and mohair wool from fellow breeders and from Dutch sheep farmers that we personally visit. With this sustainably produced wool, we make stylish, local, sustainable and transparent end products at a fair price. In this way, we give wool back the value it deserves as a natural luxury product that is produced with respect for people, animals and the environment.
We work according to the made-to-order principle.This means that we only start producing your item after you have placed your order.In this way we prevent unnecessary stock and waste.Due to this way of working, the delivery time varies from 2-4 weeks.But we promise: it's worth the wait.Accessories are usually in stock or ready within 1 week.
Unfair working conditions, an environmentally unfriendly production chain,... There are so many reasons why it is time for the fashion industry to delve into making the production process more sustainable and transparent. On our farm with knitting studio, we will introduce you to the making process of your woolen sweater during the Masterclass 'The world behind a sweater'.
Knitting, together with weaving, is the most important technique for making textiles from wool. In our knitting studio in Baambrugge there are 17 knitting machines for various uses that we rent out to students and professionals. When using this machine you also directly hire the knowledge of one of our employees. We also rent out our national knitting studio as a workplace to educational institutions, students and designers.
With our own brand we make sweaters, cardigans, shawls, and caps for which we use our own animals' wool. The brand is our way to put our money where our mouth is: we're not merely claiming that sustainable Dutch wool production is viable, we're demonstrating it. Besides our own, we use sheep, alpaca, and mohair wool from likeminded Dutch breeders and farmers. The combined materials are made into stylish, sustainable, and fair end products.
