ABOUT

The Knitwit Stable is the name of the farm and knitting studio owned and run by Reina Ovinge. After a 20-year career in fashion as a buyer and producer, a trip to China in 2013 sparked her idea to initiate a positive contribution to the industry. During her years in fashion she had only seen the industry grow bigger, faster, cheaper, and less fair. The effort, labour, and pollution that is required to produce a €19.95 sweater is mostly invisible to the consumer. It’s clear that fashion’s current system is outdated and harmful to people, animals, and the planet.

Together with her colleagues, Reina works every day to bring sustainable wool a bit closer. In doing so they want to restore wool’s reputation as a fantastically versatile and renewable material.
