Making knits. Ending waste.

“Waste” is only a state of mind.

We believe in embracing the color and spontaneity of deadstock to make fashion more circular and our closets more playful. Lots of resources go into making premium yarns - in fact, it takes 26 liters of water and 17 kilowatt hours of energy to make just 1 kilo of alpaca yarn. By rescuing quality leftover yarns in last season’s colors and rearranging them into fun and iconic palettes, we make long lasting knitwear and mending supplies designed to keep your clothes (or furniture) in circulation longer. 

We want to use deadstock
to bring back mending and repair.

Before modern fashion, repairing clothing and using leftovers was a way of life.

In the past 70 years, stunning patchwork and stitching that were commonplace around the globe for millennia have taken a backseat to our busy lives and overconsumption.

We want to lower the barrier to entry by helping people embrace mistakes, shed perfectionism and get comfortable unleashing their own unique creativity, even if it’s messy. For mending to be easy and accessible - for everyone, not just the experts. We want to resuscitate mending circles with candid chats, revive hobbies and reach for a needle instead of a glass of wine. Or maybe both. 

We are knitwear experts.

Born of high-end knitwear manufacturer Harkened, yarn and knits is what we do day in and day out.

With a production facility based in Lima, Peru, we have a front row seat to the overage materials that inevitably happen, even in the most sustainable of productions. Peru has a wealth of luxury yarns - alpaca, merino, pima cotton - and impeccable craftsmanship. Much of the knitwear produced there is built to last, in true slow fashion form. Even so, miscalculations, manufacturing errors and demand fluctuations all contribute to growing deadstock, leaving suppliers with excess premium yarns and no outlet or bandwidth to rehome them.
