The Wool of Nelson brand began in my teens, reflecting my passion for the arts and crafts. Today, assisted by my two daughters, our goal is to create unique knitwear pieces that are not only bound by style and function, but also takes our commitment seriously to deliver you a consciously designed product that will last you many years. Learning to sew, crochet and knit was an important part of my youth. I started knitting traditional beanies and sweaters already back in 1987 but university and family life took over. In 2010 I was reorganising a cupboard full of small chunks of old yarns from 87 and decided to knit them together to cover up an old chair. That was the rebirth of Wool of Nelson and I have been knitting since then.
