The Knitwit Stable is a farm with a knitting studio in Baambrugge. It believes that it is possible to process and produce wool in a sustainable way. An important step to attain this goal is to bring the manufacturing of wool back again to the Netherlands on a small scale. The company aims to make transparency possible on a small scale in every link in the wool chain, from keeping Merino sheep and Angora goats in an animal-friendly way and the sustainable re-use of existing Dutch wool, to processing it and making it into a local, fairly produced garment.
This material consists of 100% Dutch merino wool from The Knitwit Stable’s own sheep, knitted with a knitting machine 3 gg. (Rib, Single Jersey, Yarncount: 4/16).
